Two firefighters and two other people were injured in a one-alarm fire at a residential building in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood this morning, fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.
The blaze was reported at 8:52 a.m. and was controlled at 9:27 a.m., according to a fire dispatcher. The fire was confined to the third floor of the four-story building, Talmadge said.
One firefighter was transported to a local hospital after some sort of debris struck his knee, Talmadge said. The other firefighter suffered a small laceration and was treated at the scene for his injury, she said.
Two civilians were also transported to a hospital, one for smoke inhalation and the other as a precautionary measure, Talmadge said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, and investigators don’t yet have a damage estimate, she said.
