CONCORD -- A two-alarm fire broke out in a Concord home Sunday morning, displacing several people and completely destroying one home.

Firefighters responded about 6 a.m. to Detroit Avenue and found the blaze burning through a single-family home, Fire Marshal Robert Marshall said. No one was home at the time of the fire, and no one was injured.

The fire was contained about 7 a.m., and crews continued to investigate the cause of the blaze, Marshall said. The home where the flames originated was deemed a total loss, and adjacent homes were also damaged in the fire.

According to Marshall, at least four people were displaced from their homes. The American Red Cross is working to provide housing assistance for the displaced residents.
