Two people were transported with injuries not considered life-threatening and 12 others displaced after a one-alarm fire that ravaged through a four-unit complex in Oakland late Saturday, according to fire officials.

The blaze was reported at 11:11 p.m. at 1800 E. 24th St., Battalion Chief Dino Torres said. Crews were able to extinguish it around 11:50 p.m. Torres said the fire's behavior, in addition to what witnesses saw, have led to the determination that it started as a cooking fire.

Two dogs and a cat were also displaced. Crews are expected to be at the scene until at least 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
