    A woman died and two men were hospitalized Wednesday night after a fire erupted at an Oakland duplex, according to the Oakland Fire Department.

    Firefighters arrived at the residence in the 1700 block of 89th Avenue at 6:50 p.m. and found light smoke in the rear unit's kitchen. 

    Emergency crews arriving on scene also found two victims, a man and woman, at the front door. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Crews also found another victim, a man, in the unit's bedroom.

    It appears the men suffered smoke inhalation and were transported to Highland Hospital in Oakland.

    Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze at 6:56 p.m., officials said.

    Firefighters are investigating the blaze and said a pot on the stove may have sparked the fire.
