SAN FRANCISCO --Reports are that one person died, while another one was critically injured after there was a one-alarm fire at a residence in the Sunnydale neighborhood of San Francisco. The fire happened today during the morning hours, say officials from the fire department.

The officials told press that "The fire was reported at 9:54 a.m. in a two-story building at 76 Brookdale Ave."
Fortunately, the fire was under control by 10.20am, according to the officials

"That's so sad that one person died and another was seriously injured" says San Francisco resident Katie Adler. "I wonder if they were using a fire alarm. It really does save lives."

Originally, it was believed that two people had died as a result of the fire, but that turned out to be one person who died, while another was taken to the closest hospital in critical condition.

The fire started on the first floor of the house and it was reported, according to ABC 7 Local, that some residents were seen jumping out of the windows in order to escape the blaze, said a spokeswoman for the fire department. Mindy Talmadge.
