Clinton Avenue Fire Severely Damages Home

Neighbors and residents of the 1300 block of Clinton Avenue were woken early Sunday morning by a house fire. A call came into Alameda Fire Department around 6 a.m., reporting a fire at the back of the single-family residence. AFD was able to bring the fire under control in less than an hour, but the home suffered extensive fire and smoke damage. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
