4-alarm fire sweeps through Oakland building

Crews had not confirmed the death, he said. They searched the building upon arriving and began rescue efforts. He said seven people were rescued and three people were hospitalized.

No other people were reported to be missing, Logan said.

The building, like many apartment structures in Oakland, has a long and recent history of code violations.

Officials say 50 or 60 residents lived in building that was still smoldering as firefighters continued to pour water to douse the flames. The next door neighbor said she called 911 after she looked out the window and saw the duplex engulfed in flames. KTVU-TV reports it is unclear if people are still inside.

Hezbollah commander Mustafa Badreddine 'killed by own men'
Badreddine was a key suspect in the 2005 assassination in Beirut of Lebanese ex-premier Rafiq Hariri. The 55-year-old Badreddine was allegedly in charge of Hezbollah's military operations in Syria.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, crews arrived on the scene at 6:10 a.m.

The fire quickly went to four alarms and not long later, the order to evacuate the building was made because the roof and floors had been compromised by the raging fire, according to the department's Twitter account.

A resident who escaped the fire told the news station that he's convinced everyone got out safely.

In December, three dozen partygoers died in an Oakland warehouse fire that was the deadliest structure fire in the U.S.in more than a decade.
