Massive San Francisco fire brought under control
Crews battled the blaze for more than two hours. About 2:30 p.m., firefighters re-entered the building where the fire started. All three floors of the building were ravaged by flames.
At least two people have been injured, San Francisco Fire Department Capt. Jeanne Seyler said. One civilian was taken to the hospital due to smoke inhalation, and a firefighter was treated for burns to the neck.
Neither's injuries were believed to be life-threatening.
The fire was fueled by 20 mph wind gusts, and smoke could be seen from across the city.
