A two-alarm fire caused more than $1 million in damage to two buildings in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood on Saturday afternoon, a fire department spokeswoman said today.
The blaze was reported at 3:49 p.m. at 4049 24th St., fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.
The fire was extinguished at 4:27 p.m. after also damaging an adjacent building at 4045 24th St., Talmadge said.
The building where the fire started sustained $700,000 in damage to its structure and $250,000 to its contents, while the adjacent building had about $200,000 worth of damage, she said.
Seven residents were displaced by the fire but no one was injured.
The cause remains under investigation, Talmadge said.
An employee at a Wells Fargo Bank branch at 4045 24th St. said the fire burned mostly in a residential building. He said the bank had minor water damage from the sprinkler system but was open for business today.
