SAN FRANCISCO—A fire was reported at Union Street Goldsmith before 3 a.m. on Monday, June 8. The one alarm fire was reported after the blaze ignited because the back work room, where it the fire started, had no smoke alarm.
Firefighters, along with Assistant Fire Chief Kevin Burke, promptly arrived to the scene and entered through neighboring bakery La Boulange. Burke said that the smoke spread to other shops, but the fire was limited to Goldsmith.
No one was injured, and no jewelry was damaged. It was later determined that an electrical fire was the cause of the blaze.
The jewelry store’s Facebook page states that the store will remain closed until further notice.
This news comes just after the Union Street Goldsmith’s participation in the Union Street Festival which took place June 6 and 7.
Union Street Goldsmith, established in 1976 and owned by Glenda Queen and Terry Brumbaugh, is situated at the corner of Laguna and Union Street, across from a Wells Fargo bank and the popular Bar None. The area is a popular shopping destination with its many restaurants and boutiques.
