Flames tore through town homes and condominiums after a fire erupted early Wednesday in five-story building in Emeryville, fire officials said.

Oakland and Alameda County firefighters used drones and long hoses to battle the six-alarm blaze as it consumed the building, which was under construction in the 3800 block of San Pablo Avenue, fire officials said.

The blaze, which broke out at 3 a.m., quickly spread to neighboring town homes and condominiums, fire officials said. Nobody was injured in the fire.

Fire officials said the Bay Area building was a total loss.
