DALY CITY, Calif. (BCN) — The North County Fire Authority is investigating the cause of a structure fire that occurred in Daly City on Thursday afternoon.
No one was injured in the fire, which occurred at 186 and 188 Westlake Avenue in Daly City.
Fire companies, chief officers and a fire investigator responded to the fire at 3:15 p.m. on Thursday. The first company that arrived found heavy smoke and flames coming from the second and third floors of a town house, according to the North County Fire Authority.
