SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A 4-alarm warehouse fire in San Francisco on Friday afternoon had prompted a shelter-in-place.
The blaze has now been contained.
The fire is happening in the Bayview District.
The fire in the single-story warehouse was reported around 1 p.m. in the 1300 block of Donner Avenue.
At 2:11 p.m., San Francisco Fire Department officials announced via Twitter that the fire had grown to a three-alarm blaze and that they had issued a shelter-in-place order for the four blocks east of the warehouse and for a block to the north, south and west of the building.
The fire had grown so intense, however, that by 2:19 p.m., fire officials declared the blaze to be a four-alarm conflagration and called in yet more fire crews to attack it.
By 4:30 p.m., the crews were able to contain the fire.
A total of 122 firefighters were eventually involved in battling the blaze and many will likely stay on scene until tomorrow afternoon, said San Francisco Fire Department spokesman Jonathan Baxter.
The shelter-in-place order is expected to last until at least 5:30 p.m., Baxter said.
No injuries or displacements have been reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
