One person died and three others were hospitalized after fire raced through a home in Oxnard early Christmas morning.

The Oxnard Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 1300 block of West Guava Street at about 3 a.m., according to Battalion Chief Michael McCaslin.

Fire and smoke showed from the back of the structure when firefighters arrived, and four people who had been trapped were pulled from a converted garage.

One was declared dead at the scene, while three others were transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but McCaslin noted that there were no smoke alarms in the structure.
