SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A three-alarm fire in San Francisco’s Duboce Triangle Tuesday afternoon has been extinguished after damaging three buildings and causing injuries to one firefighter, fire officials said.

The fire was reported at 1:34 p.m. in the first block of Walter Street between Duboce Avenue and 14th Street. Firefighters called for a second alarm at 1:42 p.m. and a third around 2 p.m.

The fire was eventually controlled at 2:49 p.m., fire officials said.

One firefighter was injured when melting tar fell on him. He has since been transported to St. Francis Hospital. There was no word on his condition.

Fire officials said one house was engulfed in flames before the fire began to spread. Deputy Chief Mark Gonzales said 34 units were on hand involving 105 members of personnel.

No other injuries have been reported. However, power has been cut off from the area and there is some water damage to the adjacent buildings.
