One dead after car crashes into Sea Cliff home, catches fire

A driver died after crashing into a home in the Sea Cliff neighborhood that subsequently caught fire Wednesday afternoon, a fire spokesperson said.

The crash occurred around 1:40 p.m. in the unit block of 32nd Avenue, sparking a one-alarm fire in the home, San Francisco Fire Department spokesperson Jonathan Baxter said.

The garage and first floor endured “extensive damage,” Baxter said, and the flames damaged the second floor at the south wing of the house as well.

No residents were home when the crash happened, though the fire department rescued two dogs from the blaze, according to Baxter.

The fire was declared under control just after 2 p.m.
