Crews battled a massive fire that broke out Saturday morning at San Francisco’s Pier 45, KTLA sister station KRON reported.


The San Francisco Fire Department first reported the 1-alarm fire around 4:23 a.m.
The blaze quickly spread to a 4-alarm fire.

Crews responded to the area of Taylor and Jones Street and remain on scene at this time.
The cause of the fire remains unknown.

Quarter of Pier 45 at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf ‘lost to the flames’ in massive warehouse fire

Officers report the fire caused a partial building collapse on the southern part of the pier, spread to two buildings on the pier and is in danger of spreading to a third, the Fire Department says.
There is no word yet of a cause.

Fireboat St. Francis was put in position to protect the historic SS Jeremiah O'Brien ship built during World War II, and it successfully saved the ship from damage, said Jonathan Baxter, the department's spokesman.
