Around 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, firefighters responded to a small amount of smoke coming from a building on Mission and 22nd streets that was destroyed by a major fire in January 2015. Firefighters noted embers but no fire, according to a fire department spokesperson, and personnel on the scene departed quickly.

Since a major fire in January 2015 that killed one, displaced more than 60 and rendered the building uninhabitable, the building has suffered two further fires, both attributed by fire officials to trespassers using a heat source that then ignited.

Construction crews have been working on demolishing the decaying building to ground level after an emergency alteration order from the city.

Mission Local posted this story earlier in the week showing the progress of the demolition.
