Four-alarm fire in San Francisco
I was writing email last night and happened to look out the window. There was a huge fire in the Bayview. While I was watching, blue fireballs exploded. It was unnerving, to say the least. The San Francisco Fire Department upgraded it to a four-alarm fire and finally contained it around midnight. Twitter was the best source of news while it happened (the Chronicle has a story about it today). The SFPD media account and the fire fighters union posted running updates. The building was totally destroyed, but there were no injuries.

This is the aftermath of an intense warehouse fire in San Francisco’s Bayview District. It happened last night on Toland and Evans but we’re getting a better look at the damage now. Thankfully, no one was hurt. One building collapsed and the other will likely by torn down. @KTVU pic.twitter.com/B85xcw6Dft— Sara Zendehnam (@szendehnam) March 1, 2020
The morning after…when the adrenaline is gone, the hose is picked up and we leave. 2 people are displaced which is a nice way to say they no longer have a home. Fire is devastating. What happens now? #reflections @MLNow @IAFFNewsDesk @instagram pic.twitter.com/ORvkAXMqza— San Francisco Firefighters 798 (@SFFFLocal798) March 1, 2020
