San Francisco fire that displaced 6 people in Hayes Valley was deliberately set


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A two-alarm fire that displaced six people in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood in September was intentionally set, fire officials said on Wednesday.

The fire happened at a home on Haight Street near Octavia Boulevard at around 2:12 a.m.

Firefighters called a second alarm about 10 minutes later as they contended with heavy fire coming mainly from the attic area. It took until shortly after 3 a.m. to get it under control.

Fire department spokesman Lt. Jonathan Baxter confirmed Wednesday that the fire was deliberately set. He said the investigation was continuing and he could not provide further details.

Six people were displaced by the fire and assisted by the American Red Cross.
