Oakland: Firefighters battle apartment fire near Lake Merritt

OAKLAND — Firefighters were at the scene of a single-alarm fire in the city’s Adams Point neighborhood late Sunday, authorities said.

At 11:48 p.m., firefighters responded to the 400 block of Lee Street and found flames coming from behind a building, an Oakland Fire Department dispatcher said.

Crews responded to a blaze April 21 in the same block that forced 50 people to evacuate.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or displaced residents, and a fire department battalion chief was not available to provide a damage estimate.
