Small Fire in Home on Maple Street Monday Morning

The family, who were all home at the time, called the fire department around 8:20 a.m.

A small fire broke out in a single-family residence at 722 Maple Street, just across from the grocery outlet store, on Monday morning. 

A Redwood City Fire Department spokesperson said the fire was most likely due to the home's "zero-clearance" fireplace.

The family was home at the time, and quickly called the fire department as soon as the fire broke out. The fire department spokesperson said the call came in around 8:20 a.m. 

Five engines, one truck, three battallion chiefs and one fire marshall responded quickly.

"We had the fire out in about 10 minutes," said the spokesperson.

Within 30 minutes, the scene was completely cleared, he said.

"The family was not displaced, and there were no injuries," he said. "The damage to the home was minimal - the fire was contained to a back room and the family room."

A building inspector is currently on site with the family to assess the damage and what needs to be done to help fix the home.

Roads in the area are completely clear.
