SAN FRANCISCO — Fire commanders at the scene of Thursday's house blaze in San Francisco's Diamond Heights desperately sought to find a crew of firefighters when they became separated from their colleagues, but couldn't locate them before two of them were enveloped in a superheated flareup, radio logs and dispatch recordings show.
The fire at 133 Berkeley Way began about 10:44 a.m., apparently when an electrical outlet sparked and ignited curtains in the ground-level living room of the four-story home, one of the occupants of the home told dispatchers. The woman and three children in the home at the time escaped unharmed.
