A man died Friday morning after he was unable to escape a house fire, Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department Battalion Chief Jack Neiman-Kimel said.
At around 6:15 a.m. emergency crews were sent to the 1200 block of Asti Court, near Holmes Street, for a report of a house fire.
When firefighters arrived they saw a two-story home with flames coming from its garage, Neiman-Kimel said.
The blaze was then upgraded to a two-alarm fire but was quickly extinguished when firefighters arrived.
The garage, which had been converted into a room, was destroyed.
All the other occupants were able to get out of the house once they smelled what they described as burning plastic, Neiman-Kimel said.
No other injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
