One person was killed after a two-alarm fire torched an apartment building in San Francisco's Russian Hill neighborhood this afternoon. The blaze, reported at 11:52 a.m., sparked on the second floor and spread to the third floor. It required seventy-five firefighters to fight the inferno, and was put out about an hour later. In addition to the one death, another person was sent to St. Francis Memorial Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation and a pet cat cannot be found. (NBC 3)
