4 alarm fire rages at Vallejo retirement home

VALLEJO, Calif. - Authorities evacuated residents from the scene of a four-alarm structure fire in Vallejo Friday morning at a retirement home, police said.

A fire at the Casa de Vallejo retirement home at 1825 Sonoma Blvd. was reported at about 3:45 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Firefighters evacuated 115 residents from the building. Crews have accounted for all but two people, Vallejo firefighter Bill Tweedy said.

Residents from the retirement home were being taken to an evacuation center at First Baptist Church at 2025 Sonoma Blvd., police said. Three residents are being treated for injuries, one is critical, reported NBC Bay Area's Christie Smith.

More than 55 firefighters from several organizations are at the scene of the fire, including Vallejo police, the CHP, and Vallejo, Benecia and Vacaville fire departments.

It took firefighters about an hour to control the flames, Smith reported. The building was built in the 1930s so the construction makes fighting the fire more of a challenge.
