The fire was reported shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday at 215 Sanchez St. near Market Street.

Firefighters responded and found a 44-year-old woman in an upstairs bedroom. She was taken out of the home and transported to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, and is expected to survive, police said.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire within about 20 minutes.

The blaze caused an estimated $200,000 in damage — $115,000 to the structure of the building and $85,000 to its contents, fire department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

Talmadge said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
