Video from KGO of the nasty four-alarm fire that did “heavy damage,” according to the fire department, to a three-story building that includes 25 apartments and a Walgreens. No one was hurt, and “most of the damage was contained to the top floor, although the second floor sustained water damage,” according to the Chronicle. Also from the paper:

The fire, reported at 4 p.m., drew 125 firefighters. They had to poke holes through the roof to reach attic spaces where the fire burned out of control, [department spokesperson Mindy] Talmadge said. By 5:30 p.m., the blaze had been contained and firefighters were putting out hot spots.
