1 min read

The San Francisco Fire Department responded to a pier fire at Fort Mason, Aquatic Park on Tuesday. The fire destroyed one building, referred to as a “historical abandoned structure” by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). 

The fire occurred at Pier 4. SFFD first announced the fire at 2:35 p.m and was contained around 2:55 p.m. There were no injuries. 

Pier 4 was constructed by the city for the U.S. Army in 1925. It was later used by the Bureau of Prisons. The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake damaged the pier and building and was closed to the public since then. 

The Bay Trail near Fort Mason, Muni Pier, and Hyde Street Pier are closed. People are advised to avoid the area.
