Smoke can be seen coming from the popular sign near the San Francisco International Airport and a Red Flag Warning has been extended in parts of the Bay Area through 6 pm Friday.

“Authorities are on the scene and evacuation instructions will follow as needed,” the South San Francisco Fire Department shared on Twitter.

Mandatory evacuations are underway for:

  • Carnelian Road
  • Sonja Road
  • Mountain Road
  • Ridgeview Court
  • Viewmont Terrance

temporary evacuation center is set up at The Municipal Services Building & Social Hall, located at 33 Arroyo Drive, in South San Francisco.

“Safety is our number one priority. Please help us keep everyone safe by keeping your drones away from this incident,” said Fire Chief Magallanes.

The South San Francisco Fire Department asked people to sign up for alerts as another way to remain safe.
