San Francisco Homes Uninhabitable After 3-Alarm Potrero Hill Blaze

Arson investigators are trying to figure out what caused a fire to break out at a three-story home in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood Thursday morning.

The flames quickly spread to two other homes.

The 3-alarm house fire appeared to be under control by about 9 a.m. The blaze began about 6:30 a.m. Smoke was visible from a major nearby highway, as firefighters tried to knock the blaze down.

Crews were still at the scene in the 200-block of Mississippi Street hours later, though there were no visible flames or smoke.

The Edwardian home where the fire started appeared badly damaged, but the family that lives there was out of town for the holidays. A neighboring home also suffered significant damage.

Both of those homes have been deemed uninhabitable by inspectors. The Red Cross was called to the scene to provide support for residents.

There were no reports of injuries. Firefighters said they rescued a dog and two cats from two homes, but two cats from one of the homes didn’t make it.

The blaze was one of several around the Bay Area on Christmas morning. Departments in Vallejo, San Jose and Oakland also responded to significant house fires.

Fire this morning.
