Fire destroys auto business, displaces 17 at apartment building

A three-alarm fire on Sunday morning in the Inner Mission neighborhood of San Francisco destroyed an auto business and displaced 17 people at an apartment building, an assistant chief of the San Francisco Fire Department said.

The first report of the fire came in at 7:45 a.m. at 16th and Shotwell streets, assistant chief Dave Franklin said.

No civilians or firefighters were injured, Franklin said.

The fire destroyed an auto business that sells tires and other auto equipment, Franklin said.

A business named Rolling Stock is located at the corner of 16th and Shotwell streets, according to the firm’s website.

The company was not open for business at the time of the fire, Franklin said.

The fire also burned an apartment building on 16th Street where 17 people had to leave their homes, he said.

Another business on Shotwell Street sustained minor damage, he said. That business was also closed at the time of the fire, he said.

The American Red Cross responded to help the people displaced, Franklin said.

About 110 fire personnel worked to extinguish the blaze, he said.
