Flames shot through the roof of a home in San Francisco's Mission District today.

On a windy day in the city, the fire department called out at least 60 fire fighters to put out the flames.

The fire spread to two other neighboring buildings before crews were able to contain it.

The fire department said no one inside the building was hurt.

One resident is thankful crews were able to rescue his dog.

The fire was also right next to the David Ireland House. Ireland was a conceptual artist and supporters have been working on turning the home into a museum. Fire fighters say at this point the Ireland House is not damaged.

Crews will be on the scene for several hours, to make sure the fire is not rekindled by the wind.
