An Inner Sunset house fire killed a woman and sent a man to the hospital early Tuesday morning, according to fire officials.

The fire broke out at 1310 Funston Ave. between Irving and Judah streets at around 3:33 a.m., according to the San Francisco Fire Department.

Later that morning, the sidewalk in front of the house was covered in a wet pile of debris including charred comic books, a mattress and coat hangers.

“We are so sorry for what you went through today,” a neighbor wrote in a note on the door. “Please call if we can do anything — clothes, food money or anything.”

The Medical Examiner’s Office has not released the name of the woman.

Firefighters said the man is expected to survive.

The fire displaced about six people including a child, according to the fire department. The American Red Cross and city are providing services.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
