A total of 37 people have been displaced by a four-alarm fire in San Francisco's Mission District that burned at least two multi-unit apartment buildings this morning, according to the Red Cross.

A total of 30 adults and 7 children were displaced by the blaze, which was reported at a building near Duboce and Valencia streets just before 10 a.m., Red Cross spokeswoman Cynthia Shaw said.

All of those people have either been provided housing for the night or made their own arrangements, Shaw said.

Six firefighters and two residents were hurt in the fire but their injuries were not considered serious. The fire fighters were hurt in a stairway collapse.

Flames and smoke were seen pouring out of several windows on the top floor of a four-story apartment building with a business on the ground floor during the fire, according to a San Francisco fire department dispatcher.

Flames spread to at least one adjacent building, and firefighters attacked the blaze from the roof and the street.

The fire was contained at about 11:20 a.m., according to the fire department.

Several crews remained at the scene at 11:30 a.m. and several streets in the surrounding neighborhood continued to be shut down.
