A two-alarm structure fire injured a firefighter and displaced six people in Daly City Friday evening, and was controlled by firefighters shortly after it was reported, according to the North County Fire Authority.

The fire was reported at about 5:55 p.m. at a three-story building at 148 Santa Barbara Ave., according to fire officials.

The blaze spread to all three floors of the building, but firefighters controlled it at about 6:05 p.m. and completely extinguished it around 9 p.m. before it could spread to nearby homes, according to fire officials.

One firefighter was injured at the scene and was transported to a local hospital, while one resident was treated for a general illness.

The fire also displaced six tenants who were able to find living assistance through the American Red Cross.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, according to fire officials.
