Mission District Fire: Three-Alarm Blaze Displaces 20 Residents

Posted: Updated:

A fire that tore through five buildings in San Francisco's Mission District Saturday morning has displaced more than 20 residents, according to officials.

The three-alarm blaze, which broke out around 9:30 a.m., was contained in less than two hours and no tenants reported injuries. Authorities said more than 150 firefighters responded to the call in order to prevent the flames from spreading.

"It was a tough fire, getting in there and fighting aggressively in all five buildings," Deputy Fire Chief Mark Gonzales told Mission Local.

According to CBS news, the affected homes were located at the intersection of 23rd and Capp Streets.

Earlier this year, another fire in the Mission, a few blocks north on Valencia Street, displaced 37 residents.
