SAN FRANCISCO — More than 100 firefighters responded to a massive fire in a three-story San Francisco building on Tuesday afternoon, officials said. 

The San Francisco Fire Department said one woman was brought to the hospital after inhaling smoke. "She's stable and will be okay," Lt. Jonathan Baxter, a spokesperson for the department, told SFGATE. A firefighter also had minor injuries, Baxter said.

The blaze was reported by the department just after noon in the city's Western Addition neighborhood in the 1604 McAllister St. building that sits on a corner at Divisadero Street. The fire department reported on Twitter at 12:19 p.m. that "heavy fire" was on the second and third floors of the building, and Baxter later told KCBS radio that flames were throughout the building.

"The fire burned through the roof," Baxter told KCBS. "Part of the roof fell onto part of the sidewalk below."
