12:00 noon: Is it end times, as Twitter user nikilips recently suggested? We’re getting reports of an overturned, burning car at Church and Market. We spoke with SFFD public information officer Lt. Mindy Talmidge, who said she hadn’t heard anything about this — but the people seem to be saying otherwise?

So, can anyone confirm this for us? Remember, tips are always welcome.
