Livermore duplex catches fire for second time in 2 days

17 firefighters called to scene to put out smoldering attic fire

Firefighters are investigating the cause of a fire that burned a Livermore duplex Friday night for the second time in two days.

Firefighters responded to an address in the 300

block of North K Street at 10:38 p.m. to find a fire burning in a duplex that had already been the scene of a kitchen fire 24 hours earlier.

Crews found smoke coming from the eaves of the roof, then located a smoldering fire in the attic. It was extinguished within 10 minutes, according to firefighters, but units remained on scene until 2 a.m.

No injuries were reported, firefighters said. Damage caused by the fire was limited to the attic above the living room, and has been estimated at $35,000.

The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department sent four fire engines, one fire truck and a chief, for a total of 17 firefighters on scene.
