A two-alarm fire has broken out at Clayton and Ashbury. According to the San Francisco Firefighters Local 798 , the house on fire is located at 1053 Clayton St:

At least eight fire trucks have responded, but as of 9pm firefighters were still battling the blaze. According to a police officer on the scene, one person was taken away for medical attention, possibly for smoke inhalation.

Update, 9:45pm: The fire has been contained. We'll update this story with more details as we have them.

Thanks to tipsters Jaime J. and MSB.

Update, 9/1: According to SFFD, the fire damaged two buildings—1053 Clayton, and its neighbor 1065 Clayton St. 1053 Clayton contains three units, and the fire began in the middle one. 

Seven adults were displaced, though Mindy Talmadge from SFFD told us that this is most likely temporary, as the units are habitable. Five of the adults lived in the units at 1053 Clayton, and two at 1065 Clayton. 

One adult was transported to the hospital with minor burns and smoke inhalation. The fire was deemed accidental.
