San Francisco firefighters this morning have contained a fire in a Chinatown building where a senior citizen was rescued, fire officials said.
The one-alarm blaze was reported at 7:24 a.m. in a third-floor residential unit at 804 Stockton St., fire officials said.
The senior citizen rescued was not injured and the rest of the building was evacuated while crews extinguished the fire.
Damage was limited to the one unit and part of the hallway, fire spokesman Lt. Jonathan Baxter said.
One person has been left homeless and the American Red Cross has been called to help that person with temporary housing and other needs, according to fire officials.
No one was injured in the fire. The people who were evacuated were expected to be able to go back into the building by 7:45 a.m., fire officials said.
