SAN FRANCISCO (KRON)—One person was critically injured Saturday afternoon following an apartment fire in San Francisco’s Eureka Valley/Dolores Heights neighborhood, according to fire officials.
Firefighters responded to reports of a fire at an apartment on Dorland Street at approximately 1:18 p.m., said San Francisco Fire Department spokesman Jonathan Baxter.
Fire officials initially issued a shelter in place in the area, but it was quickly lifted after firefighters arrived to the scene.
