A fire overnight at 1203 Park Street that caused extensive damage to six apartments and two ground floor businesses brought 25 Alameda firefighters and mutual aid support from the Oakland Fire Department to the scene.

The Alameda Fire Department received multiple reports of the fire at 2:37 a.m. and upgraded the incident to a 2nd alarm at 2:46 a.m. The site is just one block away from the department’s headquarters and Station #1 at Park Street and Encinal Avenue.

The fire was suppressed by 4:27 a.m. and confined to a single three-story building by 4:27 a.m. Investigators were still on the scene as of 8:00 a.m.

Building occupants were evacuated with no injuries.

The Alameda Fire Department has been particularly pro-active in recent months in its use of the Nixle community alert service to distribute post-mortem press releases of fire events. Early last year, the firefighters union hired a media relations consultant.

The department suffered a black eye in May of 2011, when Raymond Zack died in the water off of Crown Beach as firefighters stood onshore waiting for a Coast Guard boat.
