Outer Sunset fire displaces six; second fire reported nearby

Six people have been displaced from their Outer Sunset house by a two-alarm fire Sunday afternoon, the San Francisco Fire Department said.

The fire, at 1270 48th Ave., was reported at 2:46 p.m. Sunday. One person inside the house was evaluated by paramedics but elected not to go the hospital, firefighters said. The fire was declared under control by 4:15 p.m.

The American Red Cross was called in to assist the displaced residents.

At almost the same time, San Francisco firefighters were called to another structure fire only a block away in the Outer Sunset, at 1254 La Playa St. That blaze was put out within about 20 minutes; there were no injuries.

Both fires remained under investigation Sunday afternoon.

The incident sent black smoke billowing into the sky over Golden Gate Park.

Supervisor Gordon Mar, who represents the Sunset District, tweeted about the fire.

“Please avoid the area and keep roads clear for emergency vehicles,” Mar said.
