A two-alarm fire at a San Francisco apartment tower injured two people this morning, and a cat is still missing following the blaze.
According to tweets from the San Francisco Fire Department, the fire was reported on the seventh floor of a 13-floor apartment building located at 125 Cambon Drive, part of the Parkmerced apartment development near San Francisco State University.
The SFFD was first alerted to the blaze at 5:36 a.m. Friday. Firefighters evacuated the sixth, seventh and eighth floors of the building, ordering the rest of the residents of the structure to shelter in place.
Firefighters rescued three people at the scene of the flames, they say. One of the victims was treated at the scene, and the other two were transported to an area hospital for treatment of injuries the SFFD says are not life-threatening.
By 7:24 a.m., the fire was under control, the SFFD says. As of 7:28, the SFFD reports that an orange cat that lived in the building was still unaccounted for.
The cause of the fire is as yet unknown, the SFFD says, as are the number of people displaced by the fire. As the investigation at the scene is ongoing, people who can are urged to avoid the area.
