San Francisco’s Brewcade closed after fire


SAN FRANCISCO — A popular San Francisco bar featuring vintage arcade games is closed for a few days this week while making repairs from a Saturday night fire, according to a statement from the bar.

The fire broke out on the adjoining walls of the Brewcade bar and arcade and the Hecho Mexican restaurant in the 2200 block of Market Street at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Brewcade.

About 60 people were evacuated from the bar as the fire broke out but no one was injured, according to the bar.

Firefighters had the fire under control within about 45 minutes, fire officials said Saturday.

According to Brewcade’s statement, the fire was determined to be caused by radiant heat from Hecho’s kitchen. The heat sparked the wood in the adjoining wall.

Brewcade is closed for the next 2-3 days for repairs.

Representatives of Hecho could not immediately be reached for comment this morning.
