    On Thursday September 4th at approx.1pm a fire broke out in one of San Francisco's most diverse neighborhoods. The fire occurred at one of the many stores in that neighborhood, but what is most disconcerting is that the local news channel NBC captured a bite from San Francisco Fire Dept. Chief Joanne Hayes-White. She said. "The business were cited in both 2009 and 2013 for fire code violations, and in both instances, the business were able to correct the violation for follow-up inspections."This fire has been named the #MissionFire on social media has displaced many residents, injured firefighters, and caused a major disaster in an already embattled neighborhood. San Francisco Fire Department collectively can output at least 1,250 gallons of water per minute. The MissionFire has gone on for at least 6 hours. California is experiencing major drought, so million gallon fires could be quickly draining resources. The #MissionFire was toxic and huge.
