SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS Radio) -- Firefighters faced a chaotic scene when flames erupted Wednesday morning at a home in San Francisco's Outer Mission district. 

The fire left six people injured--two of them critically--and 21 people displaced. Firefighters reported rescuing several people from the flames. One of the injured was a firefighter who sustained minior injuries and did not require hospitalization.

The fire was originally reported at 72 Liebig Street but flames spread to the attic of the neighboring home at 70 Liebig Street.  The street is near the intersection of San Jose Avenue and Alemany Boulevard.

Firefighters declared 70 Liebig unsafe for occupancy after the fire. They said ten people were living on that property, described by Zillow as a 2-bedroom, 1115 square foot home. Eleven dwelled in the neighboring home also damaged by the fire.
