Firefighters were battling a five-alarm fire in a San Francisco apartment building Thursday afternoon.

The fire was reported shortly before noon in the 1500 block of Golden Gate Boulevard, said San Francisco Fire Department Capt. Jeanne Seyler.

One four-story apartment building was fully engulfed in flames.

The fire spread to a second building, but firefighters have been able to keep the fire confined to the top floor and attic there.

No injuries have been reported, Seyler said. The buildings were evacuated.

About 120 firefighters were battling the blaze.
