    Two units on the third floor of the 51-unit building were entirely gutted by the flames.

    Firefighters extinguished an apartment building fire in Burlingame Saturday morning that displaced as many as 50 residents, a deputy fire chief said.

    The fire at 1015 Cadillac Way was reported at 11:14 p.m. Friday, Central County Fire Department Deputy Fire Chief Mark Ladas said.

    Two units on the third floor of the 51-unit building were entirely gutted by the flames, Ladas said.

    The rest of the 17 apartments on the third floor sustained smoke damage, leaving them temporarily uninhabitable.

    Eight more units on the third floor above and below the two involved apartments sustained water damage, and those residents were displaced as well.

    In total, between 25 and 50 residents of the building were left temporarily homeless this morning, and are being assisted by the Red Cross.

    Sixty fire personnel from 10 agencies responded to the fire, and had the fire under control in about 20 minutes and completely extinguished by 12:15 a.m., Ladas said.
