S.F. firefighters control single-alarm Presidio blaze

Firefighters have controlled a single-alarm fire that burned this morning in the basement and main floor of a two-story brick building in San Francisco's Presidio, officials said.

The fire, which threatened a 1050 Thornburg Road structure, was first reported at 3:10 a.m. and was controlled at 4:03 a.m., according to the
San Francisco Fire Department.

“Some of the buildings in the Presidio are old and can burn pretty
quickly,'' said Lt. Carl Drake. “The good thing is they're spread apart.''

Drake said that the site of this morning's fire might be a former power plant.

No injuries were reported and officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
