A rapidly spreading fire consumed over a slope south of San Francisco on Friday evening, sending dismal billows of debris into the sky as authorities requested clearings of close by roads.
The local group of fire-fighters in the city of South San Francisco, Calif., portrayed the burst on Sign Hill as a four-alert fire in a Facebook post at 12:34 p.m. nearby time.
Recordings and pictures presented via online media indicated dim and white smoke surging into a blue sky close to the South San Francisco slope sign.
The sign’s white lettering projects the words “SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO THE INDUSTRIAL CITY” into a slope in the San Bruno Mountains. The slant moves close to a private neighborhood.
The South San Francisco Fire Department gave required departures for five streets. At 2:18 p.m. nearby time, the local group of fire-fighters said the blast was contained, however departure orders stayed in power.
South San Francisco Fire Chief Magallanes asked individuals not to fly robots close to the fire. “Security is our main need,” he said in an announcement.
