Berkeley firefighters responded to and quickly contained a house fire near Downtown Berkeley Tuesday morning that saw no injuries.

Members of the Berkeley Fire Department responded to a two-alarm fire at 2606 Milvia St. about 9:52 a.m., seven minutes after the fire was reported, according to Sabina Imrie, the department's assistant fire chief for special operations. Firefighters arriving on the scene were able to contain the fire after a little more than an hour.

Neighboring houses, which were initially threatened, were undamaged, Imrie said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but the blaze began on the second floor of the three story home, according to Imrie.

No one was injured in the incident. An estimate of damages to the home is not yet available.
