>> i'm laura garcia-cannon. 20 people out of their homes this morning because of this, a four-alarm fire in san francisco's bay view district that damaged three buildings. we're learning police have a man in custody who may have set that fire. it started around 3:00 this morn near bayshore and augusta. we have live coverage. christie smith talked to people evacuated. bob has the latest on the fire. let's start with bob. >> reporter: good morning. yes, damaged three buildings and destroyed one more, given how intense this fire was it's remarkable that no one was hurt and it didn't take out the entire block. now that we've got sunlight. a pretty good idea of the damage. looking on the back side, extending all the way to the front on the right where you could see one building has collapsed out on the sidewalk. an arson investigator is near the scene. they are trying to determine the cause.
police have a 61-year-old man in custody for possible involvement. the fire started in a vacant building which is what we're looking up now. the building the second from the bottom of the street. a place that has been home to squatters. witnesses saw this man running out of the building with something in his hand. he was arrested when he returned. the fire started around 3:00 and spread to three other buildings. everyone escaped unhurt. >> the biggest challenge probably we're kind of luck the buildings up the street were only two stories. if they were all three-story it might have spread quicker. they did a good job not -- there are four buildings up there. with that amount of fire and that quick, it's easy to lose a block. they did a good job doing aggressive attack on the exposure. >> trying to avoid a downed power line.
>> reporter: and this was a four-alarm fire. they had about 120 to 130 firefighters here. that's about a third of the department's entire on-duty staff overnight. again, they were able to contain the fire to those. the vacant building did collapse on itself. the others are so damaged that no one can live in them. the the flames caught a deck on fire. the department was able to keep it from spreading. as i mentioned three of the buildings are uninhabitable. i'm going to send it up to christie smith. >> reporter: good morning to you, bob. as you said we're up the street from you and we can see people walking around in red cross blankets, closer to the homes that burned, the red cross has a vehicle, there is also a muni bus, get people out of the cold who need them. a lot of them upset. not wanting to talk.
i spoke with one woman, a caregiver. they had to help each other out of a burning building. another neighbor was able to shoot on her cell phone and really spectacular flames as the first building went up. the care giver told us it was amazing that the seniors were able to get out except for a small burn they were okay. >> they called me at 3:20, i was here at 3:27. >> you live close. >> i do. >> how did you get them out? >> well, they came down, the neighbor rang the doorbell and said that the house was on fire. and they helped each other. the 88-year-old helped the 92-year-old. >> reporter: another neighbor told us that her home caught fire on this street july 4th of
2009. she says that squatters in a make home were tied to. it's there. she is thinking that is the case. it's under investigation. i spoke with the red cross. they are helping 19 adults and three children. the good news is any in this they are telling me that everyone who was burned out had homeowner's insurance. reporting live, christie smith, todd. >> the fire's clean up impacting traffic. >> let's check in with mike to see what's happening. >> behind christie we saw a bus traveling south and another passenger vehicle so there may be hope for the southbound side past the scene. bob and christie are near the area of bayshore boulevard along 101. around augusta and that's between silver and 280. that portion was closed.
it looked like the northbound side had the fire activity. get over toward san bruno avenue. that will get you around the season. on base is affected as well. the rest of the traffic, the activity on -- a block stretch out of 280. the rest of your product, that's all right but if you can avoid the off ramp into the area that will take you into the fire activity. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. we will have more on the fire, we'll update you as the morning continues. more live reports. >> police have torn down a camp at lake view elementary where parents and teachers have been protesting. a video posted shows police standing guard near the camp on school grounds. protesters say officers moved in
on the camp about 4:00 this morning. then ordered everyone to leave. some parents were arrested, others left voluntarily. we spoke to an organizer. he said the response was too harsh for a peaceful protest. >> it takes 20 police which is ridiculous for what is a non-violent protest. we have not been aggressive. they have been coming in every day we had our people, which has educated students every day. yet this is the final word they have on this. it's pretty ridiculous to me. >> the parents and teachers protesting. they are planning to rally at the school tonight. >> right now police are still at the scene of a violent home invasion robbery. two were hurt including a 62-year-old woman who was shot. marla tellez joins us with new information. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
