Fire snarls San Francisco commute

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- A four-alarm fire in San Francisco's West Portal area Friday snarled the morning commute into downtown, transit officials said.

MUNI light-rail traffic through the busy West Portal Tunnel was shut down before dawn as firefighters battled a stubborn restaurant fire that continued burning into the daylight hours.

MUNI set up a shuttle-bus service to bypass the scene and get passengers from three rail lines to their destinations.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined. The San Francisco Chronicle said one firefighter was treated at the scene for minor smoke inhalation.
