Eight adults and one child made it out safely when their house caught on fire last night in Pacifica, but they are now without a home.
Around 5 p.m. yesterday, six fire companies, six chief offices and one fire investigator responded to a house fire at 704 Claridge Drive in Pacifica.
Smoke and flames were coming from the roof and side of the two-story single family home, according to a report from the North County Fire Authority serving Brisbane, Daly City and Pacifica.
Fire companies made entry into the home and located the fire in the rear of the structure and using hose lines extinguished the fire.
All residents inside the home were able to safely evacuate and fire crews remained on the scene for approximately two hours, checking for further extension of the fire and completing overhaul operations.
There were no injuries to the residents or firefighters.
However now the Red Cross is coordinating alternate living arrangements for the fire victims.
The North County Fire Authority Prevention Bureau is investigating the cause of the fire.
Pacifica Patch will update this story later, including information on how to help the family who lost their home.
