    The Livermore Pleasanton Fire Department, Alameda County Fire Department, and Cal Fire responded, while Pleasanton police closed streets and worked to notify people in some 50 nearby residences.

    Streets were around 11:15 p.m.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
