Two people were hospitalized in serious condition after a fire on Saturday night in Visitacion Valley. 

The one-alarm blaze broke out on February 1 at 11:23 p.m., in a residential building at 3326 San Bruno Avenue (at Ordway). It was contained just shy of an hour later, at 12:15 a.m.

The victims, both adults, were rescued from inside the home. They were taken to the hospital by ambulance in serious condition.

SFFD spokesperson Lt. Jonathan Baxter told Hoodline on Sunday that four adults residing in the building were displaced by the blaze. Its cause remains under investigation.

On Twitter, officials noted that the home was located just two blocks from SFFD's Station 44, at 1298 Girard St. Firefighters undertook an "aggressive interior attack" to rescue the injured residents.
