According to the San Francisco Fire Department, seven people were injured in a fire on Monday in a two-story house in the San Francisco Mission District.

The incident took place on the Outer Mission on Lawrence Ave. 64 on Huron Avenue reported after 11 a.m.

Video footage posted on the Citizen app showed the house in flames and firefighters on site shortly after the fire broke out. Later clips showed a charred house.

Jonathan Baxter, a spokesman for the department, initially said in a video that six people were rescued and sought refuge in the back yard of the house.

A later report by the department on Twitter showed that seven people were being rushed to a local hospital.

“We’re removing some of the walls to make sure there’s no extension at 66 Lawrence.” We’re happy to say we kept this fire from getting into two buildings. It looks like we held that fire at 64 Lawrence Street. “

The fire department said the victims were in mild to moderate condition.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
