Flames are ripping through a warehouse on San Francisco’s fabled Fisherman’s Wharf as firefighters battled to save a historic World War II ship.
The four-alarm fire, which has covered the city in a cloud of smoke and haze, began early Saturday morning, and threatened the SS Jeremiah O’Brien, firefighters told the local ABC News affiliate. The ship is one of two fully functioning Liberty ships launched during World War II.
Crews on a fire-boat were able to save the ship but the warehouse is “a total loss,” firefighters said.
No injuries were reported, and the cause of the early morning blaze, is still unknown.
