SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities in San Francisco say four homes were damaged and two people injured in an early morning three-alarm fire.
The fire began shortly after 6:30 a.m. Friday in the city's Ocean View neighborhood near the Daly City border. Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White says the roughly 90 firefighters called in to battle the blaze had to contend with heavy smoke and fog.
The fire spread quickly because there was no space between the houses. Hayes-White says a man and a woman suffered smoke inhalation and were taken to a hospital as a precaution.
The fire also forced at least a dozen people out of their homes.
