Firefighters are responding to a fire burning on Market Street in San Francisco's SoMa neighborhood Sunday.
Officials first reported the incident at around 5:50 p.m. on the 600 block of Odd Fellows Way.
Video tweeted by SFFD shows building sending up thick plumes of smoke.
That smoke is nasty. Anyone in the area should close their windows and avoid it! If you did breathe it please drink a lot of water. It’s the reason firefighters have increased rates of cancer. #becareful @IAFFNewsDesk @UCSFCancer pic.twitter.com/a9i4qtgTrT— San Francisco Firefighters 798 (@SFFFLocal798) June 14, 2021
