Massive fire consumes San Fran buildings

SAN FRANCISCO - A massive, multiple-alarm fire at Fourth and China Basin streets in San Francisco's Mission Bay neighborhood burned for hours Tuesday, sending a plume of black smoke high into the sky.

The blaze, burning at an apartment building under construction just west of AT&T Park, was reported at 4:56 p.m.

As of 6:45 p.m., firefighters had contained 50 to 60 percent of the blaze, officials said. San Francisco Fire Department Chief Joanne Hayes-White said crews would let the building collapse upon itself.

About 150 firefighters responded to the scene.
