sffd_firefighters.jpgA two-alarm fire that displaced more than three dozen people in San Francisco’s Oceanview neighborhood last week caused an estimated $450,000 in damage to a three-story building, a fire department spokeswoman said today.

The fire, reported at 5:31 a.m. Thursday in the 100 block of Broad Street, caused about $200,000 in damage to the building and destroyed roughly $250,000 in contents, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The blaze started on the second floor of the building and was extinguished at about 6:15 a.m., Talmadge said.

Two units sustained fire damage, eight units had smoke damage, and 38 people were displaced, Talmadge said.

One firefighter was taken to a hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, she said.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
