Two care workers were able to get 14 residents, some who also have special needs, to safety, according to Red Cross spokesman Woody Baker-Cohn. One of the residents was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
The fire was reported Monday at 11:07 p.m. at 628 Shotwell St., according to San Francisco fire officials.
