SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say several people were sickened when pepper spray was released in a popular eatery on San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf.

KTVU reports the San Francisco Fire Department evacuated at least 20 people from the Boudin Bakery around 10:20 a.m. Friday. At least 11 people were treated at the scene by emergency crews.

The restaurant reopened shortly after hazmat crews checked the air quality.

Authorities say it's possible a homeless person released the spray inside the bakery.
