Fatal fire near Cow Palace causes $200K damage to three buildings
April 03, 2014, 05:00 AM

A fire in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood Tuesday evening killed one elderly woman, injured six other people and caused nearly $200,000 in damage to three buildings, fire officials said Wednesday.

The woman killed in the two-alarm house fire was identified as 85-year-old Jane Thompson of San Francisco, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Thompson was one of seven people caught in the fire in a duplex at 25 Castillo St., near Geneva Avenue, at 5:25 p.m. One man escaped by jumping out of the second-story window, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.Six people were taken to the hospital. Two were in critical condition, one had serious injuries and three had minor injuries, Talmadge said.

The fire spread to two other houses at 21 and 29 Castillo St., causing exposure damage to both buildings, Talmadge said.

The duplex sustained $100,000 in property damage and $75,000 in damage to its contents. Each of the other two houses sustained an estimated $5,000 in damage, Talmadge said.

Six people were displaced from the duplex and are being assisted by the American Red Cross. No one was displaced from the other two houses, Talmadge said.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation. Fire officials did not have new information today on the condition of the other injured victims.
