Fire breaks out supportive housing site on Eddy Street

Shortly after 7 p.m. the San Francisco Fire Department reported that a one-alarm fire had broken out at 364 Eddy St, the site of the Elm Hotel.

The fire is apparently under control, though the general public is being asked to avoid the area while firefighters work. The street is currently blocked by fire trucks.

The fire broke out on the fourth floor, and quickly spread to the fifth floor. According to SFPD, no injuries occurred and two people were displaced.

The Elm is run by Episocopal Community Services, and houses 81 residents who were formerly homeless. It opened in 2004.eddy streetElm HotelfireSFFDSROTenderloin
