The blaze was reported at 5:16 p.m. at 870 Capp St., near 24th Street, at a vacant bungalow to the rear of the church Iglesia Del Pacto Evangelico, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The fire caused an estimated $200,000 in damage to the bungalow and $50,000 to its contents. It also caused about $190,000 in damage to two other nearby buildings–a supermarket and restaurant, Talmadge said.

Firefighters extinguished the fire at 6:04 p.m., but not before the flames caused the roof of the bungalow to partially collapse, she said.

The bungalow had been under construction, Talmadge said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
