According to SFD PIO Dana Vander Houwen, the fire was extinguished quickly, resulting in no injuries and a small amount of exterior structural damage. The cause of the fire was unknown.
Brandon Ivers, a future renter of the home, was told of the fire by a neighbor and was outside watching fire fighters finish up. Ivers is one of four renters who recently put down a deposit for the home, and was looking to move in in the coming weeks. Ivers said he wasn’t sure if the fire would affect the move-in process.
Three engines and about a dozen fire fighters are blocking off Denny between Harvard & Broadway for a fire reported at 800 Denny. No flames were visible, but the house, which appears to be vacant, is still being tended to. More information to come.
