The fire was kept to the apartment unit of origin, according to OFD Chief Reginald Freeman.

“Thank you to @OaklandFireCA for your quick and professional response. Grateful all are safe. Sending support to those displaced and who lost their pets,” Oakland City Council President Nikki Fortunato Bas wrote on Twitter.
