Four-Alarm Restaurant Fire Disrupts SF Muni Service

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A four-alarm blaze in San Francisco’s West Portal neighborhood has forced the closure of a municipal transportation tunnel.

The fire at the Squat and Gobble restaurant broke out early Friday morning and went to a fourth-alarm around 6:30 a.m.

Television news footage shows smoke and flames shooting from the restaurant’s roof.

Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White says it looks like the fire is coming from the restaurant’s kitchen area. She says one firefighter was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation, but there are no other reports of injuries.

Inbound M and K Muni lines have been disrupted. Muni has set up a bus bridge at the St. Francis Circle station to bring people into the downtown area.
