SAN FRANCISCO —
Fire investigators searched through the burned out wreckage of a San Francisco carport Wednesday, searching for evidence linking the blaze to an early morning arsonist, authorities said.
Raul Vasquez said he was awakened by a neighbor ‘s 5 a.m. call alerting to him to the fire in his garage/carport at his home in the 1200 block of Thomas Avenue.
“I saw the flames,” Vasquez said of the scene as he raced out of his home. “I’m still shaking. It was very scary. The flames were about 12 feet high.”
Vasquez said he used the carport area to restore vintage cars. At least four of the vehicles were heavily damaged by the blaze.
While San Francisco Battalion Chief Pete Fry would not say it was a suspicious fire, arson investigators were called to the scene.
Vasquez told KTVU that he had received threats in the past, but would give no further details.
The blaze was quickly brought under control and firefighters were able to keep it from spreading to the Vazquez home. There were no injuries.
