A two-alarm fire shattered windows and damaged a house managed by the San Francisco Housing Authority in the city's Potrero Hill neighborhood Wednesday evening, a fire spokeswoman said today.
Firefighters responded to reports of a fire at 150 Dakota St. at about 8:55 p.m., San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.
A witness reported seeing flames coming out the windows of the two-story home before firefighters arrived, Talmadge said.
"The heat was breaking the windows, but no one was seen inside the home," Talmadge said.
Responding crews had water on the fire within minutes, and the blaze was extinguished shortly after their arrival. No injuries were reported.
A damage estimate was not immediately available, but Talmadge said officials don't expect foul play in the cause of the fire.
"We called arson investigators, and there was nothing that indicates it was anything suspicious," she said.
