OAKLAND (KCBS Radio) - A 21-year-old woman was hospitalized and a dog died in a fire in Oakland early Thursday morning, a battalion chief said.

The fire was reported at about 4:30 a.m. at a two-story residence at 5932 Hayes Street.

Crews arrived to find flames burning on both stories of the home and entered the building after getting warnings that people may still be inside, Battalion Chief James Bowron said.

After searching the home, firefighters determined everyone had gotten out of the building and they eventually extinguished the blaze at 5:23 a.m., preventing it from spreading to adjacent homes, Bowron said.

Six people were displaced, including the 21-year-old woman who was taken to Highland Hospital with smoke inhalation and burn injuries, according to Bowron.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
