A two-alarm house fire damaged a vacant home in Alamo and left two firefighters with heat-related injuries this afternoon, a San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District spokeswoman said.
Neighbors called 911 to report the fire at the under-construction home at 87 Las Quebradas Lane around 1:05 p.m., fire district spokeswoman Kimberly French said. Crews arriving on the scene saw a fire that appeared to have spread from the single-story home's side yard to its attic area, French said.
Firefighters were able to get the blaze under control in about 30 minutes, she said. Three firefighters were transported to San Ramon Regional for heat related injuries, according to French. They were treated and released.

Temperatures in Alamo at the time of the fire topped 100 degrees. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
