Sunday Afternoon Balboa Park Fire Displaces 16

Just before 3pm yesterday afternoon, a fire broke out in a multi-family home on the 200 block of Onondaga Avenue near Balboa High School.

It took firefighters half an hour to extinguish the blaze, which left 12 adults and four children temporarily homeless, according to SF Fire Department spokesperson Jonathan Baxter. There were no reported injuries.

The Red Cross helped families find shelter last night and is working with City Services to secure temporary housing for those affected, SFGate reported earlier today.

The cause of Sunday's fire is still unknown, and an investigation is ongoing.
