While everyone was busy reading the news of Richmond's refinery fire last night, a blaze started here in San Francisco's Ingleside neighborhood early this morning, destroying 10 businesses and blocking Muni lines throughout the afternoon.
The call came in at 5:46 a.m. after residents spotted flames near the 1500 block of Ocean Avenue. Firefighters worked for nearly two hours trying to control the four-alarm blaze, which caused more than $3 million in damages, said Mindy Talmadge, spokeswoman for the Fire Department.
Nobody was hurt, but two firefighters were treated for minor injures, she said.
"It doesn't appear to be suspicious, but it's still under investigation," Talmadge told us.
Muni lines were halted in the area, and traffic has reportedly been a complete nightmare. Muni spokesman Paul Rose says the K line is still blocked as of noon and bus bridges have been set up to accommodate commuters.
