A two-alarm fire that broke out at a residential building in The City’s Mission Dolores neighborhood was contained Tuesday evening, fire officials said.

More than 70 firefighters responded to the fire reported at 4:42 p.m. at a building in the first block of Dolores Street near 14th Street, Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said. No injuries were reported.

The flames, which were initially reported on the top floor of the six-story, 30-unit building, were contained around 5:20 p.m., fire officials said.

About six upper units sustained water damage and tenants may not be able to return to those units for a day or two, officials said. The cause of the fire was under investigation Neil Patrick, 23, who lives with his partner in the building, said he saw the fire as he was returning home.

“I’ve lived here for three days,” he said.

The blaze was one of three fires reported in The City within a 15-minute period, Hayes-White said.
