Fire in Nob Hill Garage Threatened High-End Italian Restaurant

San Francisco firefighters extinguished a garage fire that threatened a high-end Italian restaurant in the city’s Nob Hill neighborhood early this morning, according to a fire spokeswoman.

The blaze was reported at about 1:30 a.m. in a garage on Sacramento Street between Polk Street and Van Ness Avenue, according to San Francisco fire spokeswoman Jen Balestrieri.

Balestrieri said the fire appears to have begun in a heap of trash against a wall in the garage.

Acquerello, a high-end, Michelin-star Italian restaurant, was threatened in the blaze, but Balestrieri said she did not know whether the restaurant sustained damages.

The fire was brought under control at 1:57 a.m., she said.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
