SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) – San Francisco crews battled a fire in the Castro District that was dangerous not only because of the flames, but also a powerful gas leak. In the end, five firefighters were hurt and seven people are out of their homes.
Crews are still on the scene hours later to make sure there are no more flames or gas ruptures.
Investigators are now working to determine the cause. They believe it started in the garage but there’s so much damaged debris to sift through, it could take a while to figure out exactly what started it. The fire was huge and could be seen from several blocks away. That caused some confusion for firefighters as they tried to find it.
