2-Alarm Fire Burns Apartment At San Francisco High-Rise

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- Firefighters put out a two-alarm fire at a high-rise residential building in San Francisco Friday evening, a fire spokesman said.

The blaze was reported shortly after 7 p.m. at a Parkmerced apartment building in the 100 block of Cambon Drive, about a half-mile south of San Francisco State University.

Crews found the fire at a residential room on the seventh floor of a 12-story building and extinguished the fire about 15 minutes later, fire spokesman Jonathan Baxter said.

A second-alarm response was called for due to the size and occupancy of the building, Baxter said.

Crews remained at the scene Friday night to make sure the fire didn't extend past the room, according to Baxter.

No injuries were reported, he said.

Baxter didn't know the number of people displaced by the blaze.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
