Cal Fire Battalion Chief's Home Burns in Concord

A Cal Fire battalion chief and his family safely escaped a one-alarm fire at their Concord home Tuesday morning, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District officials said.

The battalion chief and his family were displaced from their home in the 2100 block of Frederick Street due to damage caused by the blaze but were uninjured, Fire Marshal Robert Marshall said.

Crews were dispatched to reports of the fire around 8:20 a.m. and had it under control in about 10 minutes, Marshall said.

The blaze started in one of the home's front bedrooms and spread to at least one other room, causing an estimated $110,000 in damage, according to the fire marshal.

Fire investigators are looking into what caused the blaze but do not believe it was suspicious.
