SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A 3-alarm house fire in San Francisco appears to be under control.

The fire in the city's Potrero Hill neighborhood began around 6:45 a.m. Thursday. Smoke was visible from a major nearby highway, as firefighters tried to knock the blaze down.

Crews were still at the scene two hours later, though there were no visible flames or smoke.

KTVU-TV reports that the Victorian where the fire started was badly damaged, but the family that lives there was out of town for the holidays. A neighboring home also suffered significant damage.

There were no reports of injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
