SF fire department rescues dog from Bayview blaze

A one-alarm fire displaced a family of three from a home in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Monday morning, according to fire officials.

The fire on the second floor of 1623 Wallace Ave. was reported at 9:02 a.m. and was under control by 9:16 a.m., according to fire department spokesperson Jonathan Baxter.

Firefighters rescued one dog, who “will be fine,” Baxter said.

Baxter did not have information on the extent of the damage but said the American Red Cross is assisting the three residents who were displaced by the fire.

The fire’s cause remains under investigation.
