12 people were displaced from their homes at 1666 Golden Gate Ave. (at Divisadero) after a fire on Wednesday afternoon, marking the second serious fire to occur on that block this year.
Officials said that the fire in the two-story building broke out at 3:57 p.m. and was contained by 4:17 p.m. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Those who were not able to return to their homes were assisted by Red Cross services.
In early May, a two-alarm blaze just down the block, at 1635 Golden Gate Ave., displaced five residents. We'll have more on the cause of both fires as information becomes available.
