Black smoke visible from much of Lafayette entered the sky tonight. The smoke was a result of a fire just past the Lafayette border in Rossmoor.
The fire broke out at a condominium complex in the retirement community of Rossmoor around 6:40 p.m. tonight.
A passerby saw smoke and helped ensure the building was evacuated by knocking on doors and yelling for people to get out of the building.
No injuries were reported, but over 50 percent of the outside of the building was burned.
Firefighters from the Moraga-Orinda Fire District assisted on putting out the blaze.
