Mission District Fire Causes $150,000 In Damage

A two-alarm fire at an apartment building in San Francisco’s Mission Dolores neighborhood Tuesday evening displaced nine residents and caused about $150,000 in damage, a fire spokeswoman said.

The fire was reported at 4:42 p.m. at a residential building in the first block of Dolores Street near 14th Street.

The fire started on a deck on the top floor of the white six-story building, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The blaze was under control at 5:36 p.m. after crews had to cut through the roof to attack the flames.

The fire caused $100,000 in damage to the building and $50,000 worth of contents were destroyed, Talmadge said.

Nine residents were displaced. The American Red Cross was assisting those adults with temporary housing, Talmadge said.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, she said.

According to city records there are 30 units in the building, which was built in 1927.
