SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — Two buildings in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood sustained several hundred thousand dollars in damage Friday night in a two-alarm fire that displaced six, a fire official said Friday.

The fire, which started in the 1300 block of Harrison St., was reported just after 7:30 p.m., according to San Francisco Fire Department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge.

It spread to a neighboring building at 204 Dore St. before it was declared under control shortly after 8 p.m., Talmadge said.

The building where the fire started, which had two residential units and one commercial unit, sustained $150,000 in damage to the structure and $50,000 to the contents.

The Dore Street building, with three residential units, sustained $100,000 in property damage and $50,000 in damage to contents.

Six adults were displaced and were assisted by the American Red Cross, Talmadge said. No injuries were reported.

The fire’s cause remains under investigation.
