Neighbors near Glen Canyon were awoken last night by the scream of fire engines racing to battle a one-alarm grass and brush fired burning in the western part of the park early Wednesday morning.
The fire was first reported just after 1 a.m. according to the San Francisco Fire Department. It was declared under control at 2:15.
The fire was near San Francisco School of the Arts High School but did not damage school buildings or any buildings in the park. There were no injuries.
The Fire Department is investigating the cause of the fire. Residents say that teens and homeless people often gather in the more hidden portions of the park at night to drink and socialize. Some dog walkers have reported finding remnants of small fire pits in the past.
