SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Investigators are still working to find the cause of a five-alarm fire that burned six buildings on the edge of San Francisco’s Mission District.

KPIX-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/28JPSXj ) that the blaze on Saturday has displaced 58 people, who are being assisted by the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

The fire broke out Saturday afternoon, sending thick, dark smoke into the air and forcing dozens of residents in the area to flee from their homes.

At least two people were taken to a hospital and treated for smoke inhalation. Fire officials say a 1-year-old child also was treated at the scene for breathing issues. It is unknown if any pets died in the fire.
