No one injured in Del Prado home fire Wednesday morning

$250,000 damage in blaze in Del Prado neighborhood

A fire at a home in the Del Prado neighborhood Wednesday morning resulted in $250,000 in damages.

"Forty percent received either smoke or direct fire damage," said Deputy Fire Chief Joseph Rodondi of the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department.

The call to 7004 Corte Nina came in at 10:22 a.m., according to Rodondi.

"The first company arrived and found heavy smoke in the building," he said.

Most of the damage was contained to the attic and bedroom areas of the home.

Rodondi said 19 firefighters responded to the scene, and it took about 30 minutes to bring the fire under control. No one was injured.

"Most of the damage was contained to the attic and bedroom areas of the home."

We got an email from the Harvest Park PTA, talking about a HP family losing everything in a house fire.

Is this the same house? If it is, please update the article so people know donations for the family are being accepted since the family lost everything.
