A residential fire in North Long Beach left one person injured and a total of five people displaced from their home Tuesday morning, according to the Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD).

Fire units were called to the 400 block of Sunset Street at 7:20AM regarding a fire at a one-story duplex that was contained to one bedroom, LBFD spokesman Mark Miller said.
