Smoke at one point also covered the entire west side of Potrero Hill, according to one resident.

Just after 8 p.m., NBC Bay Area's Cheryl Hurd reported firefighters were able to rescue a man from the burning building. The man's condition was unknown late Wednesday.

Meanwhile, nearly 60 displaced residents gathered late Wednesday at an evacuation center set up by the American Red Cross at a City College building at 22nd and Valencia streets.
