Fire in San Francisco Leaves 3 People, 1 Firefighter Hurt

Three people were taken to a trauma center and a firefighter suffered injuries after a fire broke out in San Francisco's Excelsior District Monday morning, according to the fire department. 

The blaze burned two homes along the 200 block of Vienna Street, San Francisco Fire Department Lt. Jonathan Baxter said.

One of the three people taken to the trauma center suffered moderate fire burns, Baxter said. The other two people suffered smoke inhalation.

The injured firefighter was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and burns. He is expected to be OK.

Firefighters were able to rescue one dog from the fire, but a second dog — a 7-month-old pup named Star — remained missing as of Monday afternoon. A search dog was brought in to look for Star, who may be trapped inside the burned area.
