Peninsula: Hip-hop fans and Caltrain a good match

The San Francisco Caltrain station is a short walk from the concert venue at the McCovey Cove parking lot. An express train to San Carlos will leave about 15 minutes after the conclusion of the concert and make all local stops from San Carlos to San Jose Diridon. A second train will leave 10 minutes later and serve all local stops.

Fire officials say garage blaze appears to be accidental

A two-alarm fire that destroyed the garage and part of the roof of a Foster City home Tuesday appears to have been an accident, Foster City Fire Department Battalion Chief Nick Weber said Wednesday.

He estimated damage to the home and its contents at $50,000. Investigators aren’t sure what sparked the blaze at 140 Flying Cloud Isle just before 2 p.m. Neighbors heard two explosions and believed at least one was a propane tank. But Weber said fire officials now believe the sounds were caused by fire extinguishers caught in the flames.
