Fire at Fisherman's Wharf

Sat May 23, 2020 10:37 pm

A fire at Pier 45 at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco this morning has been contained and a quarter of the pier was destroyed with the warehouse being destroyed. The fire was first reported at 4:17 am Pacific Time and flames were seen through the night sky, but the fire was contained to a section of the pier and contained in the early afternoon. Firefighters will remain on the scene Memorial Day Weekend to make sure smouldering fires and hotspots were put out. One firefighter had a cut on his hand that was treated, but no other injuries were reported. The pier was completely evacuated, along with a few nearby businesses. The fire caused a partial building collapse on the southern end of the pier with the fire spreading to two buildings on the pier and was in danger of spreading to a third building. The SS Jeremiah O'Brien from World War 2 was saved by fireboats and came close to being destroyed. The structural integrity of the pier is being assessed and the cause of the fire is under investigation. It is very fortunate that much of the pier, including the historic ship was saved and no lives were lost.
