The fire started around 11:30 a.m. Monday on the 300 block of West Portal Avenue. the San Francisco Fire Department's Twitter account has posted multiple tweets indicating that this blaze began as a "roof fire" and was affecting six addresses and three buildings including 301 and 309 West Portal Avenue.
By 11:48 a.m. a second alarm had been called, and by 12:30 p.m. it was a three-alarm fire.

It was not clear which of the buildings suffered a collapse, or if it was multiple buildings.
The SFFD said the block had been evacuated.
An overhead drone or helicopter photo on KTVU's homepage appears to show that the fire spread around the corner from 301 West Portal to the 14th Avenue side.
The addresses that appeared to be impacted included those belonging to West Portal Cleaners, White Daisy Nail Spa, and Fuji Japanese Restaurant.
