San Francisco fire investigators are still trying to determine the cause of an early morning fire in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood Tuesday that damaged an Indian restaurant, two apartments and two clothing stores, a fire department spokeswoman said today.
The three-alarm fire was reported at about 4:45 a.m. in a three-story building occupying the Tikka Masala restaurant, Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.
The fire occupied the area between the restaurant kitchen and the tradesman entrance to the building, which share a common wall, but investigators have not yet determined on which side it ignited, and how, according to Talmadge.
The fire then spread upstairs, damaging two apartments. The residents, five adults and two children, have been displaced.
No injuries were reported.
Damage to the entire building has been estimated at $150,000, Talmadge said.
The Villians clothing store next door sustained $100,000 in damage from fire and smoke, and the Wasteland clothing store sustained $5,000 in exterior damage, according to Talmadge.
