Fire In Public Housing Building Sends One To Hospital, Displaces Four

One person was sent to the hospital with smoke inhalation from a one-alarm fire that displaced two adults and two children from a public housing building on San Francisco’s Fulton Street early this morning, a fire department spokeswoman said.

The blaze was reported at 5:42 a.m. on the second floor of a building in the 600 block of Fulton Street, which is near Laguna Street, and was extinguished 16 minutes later, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The injuries from the smoke inhalation were not considered life-threatening, Talmadge said.

The American Red Cross responded to assist the displaced residents.

The cause of the fire and an estimate for how much damage it caused were not immediately available, Talmadge said.
