Small fire extinguished at vacant former SFPD station

A small fire was reported in a vacant former police station Monday afternoon in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood, according to fire officials.

The one-alarm fire on the second floor of 2325 Third St. was reported at 1:26 p.m. and brought under control seven minutes later, according to fire department spokesperson Jonathan Baxter.

There was no one inside the building requiring evacuation and no injuries or displacements were reported, Baxter said.

The fire’s cause remains under investigation.

The building is the former home of San Francisco’s Potrero Station, which had its operations moved to the current Bayview Station in 1997.
