The blaze on the third floor of an apartment building was first reported at 6:19 p.m., the San Francisco Fire Department said. It was under control less than an hour later, at 6:57 p.m.

Several pictures posted on Twitter suggest the fire was visible throughout the Mission and in adjacent neighborhoods.
