SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The city’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show on the Embarcadero may have been canceled this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic but that didn’t stop residents from lighting up the skies with illegal fireworks.

In addition, a fire reported about 9:30 a.m. Sunday was burning multiple acres at the Gleneagles Golf Course at McLaren Park, with about 25 department personnel at the scene.

Fireworks also sparked a blaze on a rooftop at 2500 Arelious Walker Dr.

The San Francisco fire department said it responded to 110 fires between 3 p.m. Sunday and 3 a.m. Sunday, with all but two attributed to fireworks.

There were multiple reports of fireworks and sideshows happening throughout the city’s Mission District.

Over a two-hour period Saturday night, San Francisco firefighters were called out to more than a dozen blazes.
