15 displaced in Excelsior blaze that injured four, including firefighter

Four people including a firefighter were injured Monday morning in a two-alarm blaze that broke out at a house in the Excelsior, according to fire officials.

The fire also killed two cats and displaced 15 people after it erupted at 266 Vienna St. before 11 a.m. and spread to an adjacent home, the San Francisco Fire Department said on Twitter.

The department said the three victims and the firefighter will be “okay.”

A third cat remains missing, the department said.

Two dogs were also reported missing in the fire and possibly trapped inside a building. One of the dogs has since been found, but the other, a puppy named “Star,” remains missing.

Fire officials are asking the public to call 311 or San Francisco Animal Care and Control if the missing animals are found.
