    Firefighters on Wednesday battled a one-alarm residential fire in Oakland that threatened nearby homes.

    The house is located at MLK Jr. Way and 59th Street, said fire officials, who requested additional trucks and engines to fight the flames. The fire was reported around 10:30 a.m. and was under control before 11:10 a.m.

    NBC Bay Area's SkyRanger showed firefighters atop a charred and partially caved in roof, while the house's blackened interior smoldered. 

    Residences around the burning house were evacuated because officials were concerned they would ignite as well.

    No further details were immediately available.
