A San Leandro man died after a fire broke out in his home early Wednesday morning.

Firefighters arrived at the home at 13111 Neptune Drive a few minutes before 5 a.m. and had the 1-alarm blaze under control within a half hour, according to Aisha Knowles, Alameda County Fire Department spokeswoman.

Before the fire department arrived, neighbors tried to put out the blaze with fire extinguishers and garden hoses, Knowles said.

Firefighters pulled the man from the blaze and preformed CPR on him before taking him to San Leandro Hospital, where he died a few hours later.

No one else was in the home and no other injures were reported, said Knowles.

The coroner pronounced the man dead shortly before 10 a.m. The man’s identity has not yet been released, pending the notification of his family.

The man’s cause of death is unknown at this time, as is the cause of the fire and both are under investigation, Knowles said.
