Thirteen residents of a mixed apartment-commercial building near the Daly City-San Francisco city line were displaced Sunday afternoon when a two-alarm fire damaged several second-floor apartment units, North County Fire Authority firefighters said Sunday night.
Nine engine companies, two truck companies and other firefighters responded at 4:19 p.m. Sunday to 9 Liebig St., near Mission Street. Everyone inside the building had already escaped the building.
The fire appears to have started in an apartment in the back of the building, firefighters said; one apartment sustained heavy fire damage, and all the building’s apartments sustained smoke damage. Firefighters kept the flames from spreading to adjacent buildings.
The fire was completely out about four hours after it was reported. The 13 displaced residents were being helped Sunday night by the American Red Cross. No civilians or firefighters were injured, and the cause of the fire is under investigation by the North County Fire Authority’s Fire Prevention Services Bureau.
