San Francisco firefighters were at the scene of a two-alarm structure fire Thursday morning at Haight Street and Masonic Avenue. The fire broke out at the True clothing store a little before 5 a.m.

Fire crews had difficulty entering the store because it was chained, but once inside they were able to quickly get a handle on the flames. The fire also affected Peoples Café next door. Both businesses will remain closed while fire crews investigate.

"From the upstairs perspective, from looking down upon it, it didn't look like the back house was affected too much. It looked like it was isolated to True clothing store and Peoples Café," said Katie Howard, who witnessed the fire from across the street.

No injuries were reported and the building does not have any residential units directly above the fire.
