Firefighters responded to a report of a blaze near 15th and Minna streets at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday night, fire dispatcher Steve Beach said.

Crews and the building’s sprinklers quickly extinguished the fire, which was in the room of an apartment, Beach said.

Shortly thereafter, at 6:40 p.m., firefighters responded to a report that a two-story building was on fire at Geary Boulevard and 17th Avenue, the fire dispatcher said.

Arriving crews found a room in the building had caught fire, but had been extinguished by the building’s sprinkler system.

Damage estimates were not immediately available in either case.
