A fire broke out this afternoon at the barely one-month-old Alamo Drafthouse at the New Mission but was brought under control within minutes, authorities reported.
According to social media posts by the San Francisco Fire Department, the one-alarm fire broke out at the 2550 Mission St. theater sometime before 3:40 p.m. and was under control within minutes. The fire department noted on Twitter that a heating unit on the roof that had been smoldering was put out and patrons were given the OK to return to the theater just after 4 p.m.
We’re good! There was a small electrical issue on the roof – thanks to @sfgov and @SFFFLocal798 for the swift response! — Alamo San Francisco (@DrafthouseSF) January 29, 2016
