VIDEO: Crews tame Chinatown apartment fire in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Crews knocked down a fire at an apartment building in San Francisco’s Chinatown Saturday morning, fire officials said.

Around 3:37 a.m., the San Francisco Fire Department responded to reports of a fire at 39 Waverly Place, according to fire officials.

The two-alarm blaze came from the third floor of the building and caused moderate to extensive damage to some, but not all of the apartment complex.

By about 4:04 a.m., crews had the fire under control.

KRON4’s Averi Harper is at the scene.

She says firefighters rescued one elderly person who suffered smoke injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

Officials do not know exactly how many residents are displaced, but The Red Cross and city services are on the scene to assist.

Fire crews cleared the scene around 6:00 a.m.
