Just four blocks from Ocean Beach, a Sunday afternoon house fire spread to at least two households and was contained by 2:30 p.m., but appears to have displaced several residents.
A one-alarm house fire hit the Outer Sunset Sunday afternoon, sometime after 1 p.m. The fire was on the 1900 block of 46th Avenue, at Pacheco Street, and as seen below, the SF Fire Department was dispatching firefighters to the scene by 1:40 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

KRON4 reports that “multiple people have been displaced” by the fire, though as of about 5:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, that station noted that “It is unknown at this time how many people were displaced.”

KRON4 also has pictures from the scene of the fire here and here, which indicate that the fire reached at least two homes. Though from the looks of things, it seems likely that other adjacent homes would have suffered water damage from the extinguishing of the blaze.
Thankfully, by 2:31 p.m. Sunday, the fire department tweeted, “Fire contained with no injuries.”
