SAN FRANCISCO—A two-alarm fire spread through a two-story home in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond neighborhood on Friday, January 13.
The San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD) reported the fire at approximately 9:00 a.m. at 3526 Fulton Street via their Twitter account. What began as a first alarm fire in the basement of the two-story home quickly turned into a second alarm before being controlled at 10:00 a.m., said San Francisco Fire Department spokesperson Lt. Jonathan Baxter.
The blaze spread from the basement to a nearby shed and set of stairs that may be part of the home.
A firefighter at the scene was taken to a hospital for burns to his ears and face. No other injuries were reported. The injured firefighter was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated.
“The injured FF from this mornings 2nd alarm fire was released with minor burns and will be ok. Thank you all for your thoughts,” the SFFD tweeted on Saturday, January 14. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
