The San Francisco Fire Department has determined that a major apartment fire in San Francisco’s Mission District in January that claimed the life of one man was not intentionally set and may have been the result of an electrical fault
The fire that destroyed a six-story apartment project in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood last March started accidentally, according to a preliminary report released this morning by the San Francisco Fire Department.
The San Francisco Fire Department will not release the report on Tuesday, as expected, about last month’s massive Mission Bay apartment fire, a fire official said.
The fire battalion chief who used a helmet video camera to record the events during the Asiana Airlines crash response at San Francisco International Airport may be disciplined for violating department policy.
PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said the San Bruno Avenue fire presented a “unique situation.” In a normal situation crews can shutoff a building’s gas valve but in this case the valve was too close to the fire.
