San Francisco firefighters are investigating an apartment complex structure fire that left one man dead just days before Christmas.

The two-alarm fire was reported just before 3 p.m. Monday on the 1500 block of Cabrillo Street in San Francisco's Richmond District. Responding emergency crews found flames shooting out of the second floor when they arrived on scene.

Firefighters said a man was pulled out of the burning building and rushed to St. Mary's Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

A firefighter suffered a minor injury while battling the blaze. Three other people are displaced and the Red Cross is working to find them temporary housing.

An investigation is ongoing.
