Nine people were displaced following a one-alarm fire at a home in Antioch, early in the morning  on Sept. 25, according to the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.

The blaze was first reported at 1:03 a.m. in the 2900 block of Elizabeth Lane, Battalion Chief Bob Atlas said.

Fire crews arrived to see a truck on fire in a driveway.

Atlas said crews were able to contain the blaze by 1:20 a.m. but the exterior of the home sustained fire damage.

None of the occupants of the home were injured, but spent the night with family after the blaze knocked out an electrical meter and disabled power and gas to the home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Atlas said.
