One person was killed and two others were injured in a two-alarm apartment fire in San Francisco, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

The fire at a three-story, 12-unit building began on the second floor and spread to the third, a fire department spokeswoman said.

The unidentified person who died was on the second floor, she said, adding two others on the third floor were treated for smoke inhalation.

Neighbors said the fatality was an elderly man.
