Officials said one firefighter sustained minor injuries, but was treated and released.

Four people living above the pub were displaced, along with five tourists staying at a nearby Airbnb. The American Red Cross was on scene providing assistance.

Built in 1901, the building survived the great 1906 earthquake and fire that destroyed much of San Francisco, according to pub’s website.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
