Neighborhood watering hole Liverpool Lil's was the scene of a two-alarm fire this morning. According to NBC Bay Area News, the blaze was reported to the SFFD at 7:30 a.m., with the second alarm called in at 7:48 a.m. Luckily, fire fighters were able to contain by the blaze by 8:30 a.m. and no injuries have been reported.

Largely unchanged since it was established in 1973, the popular English-style pub is known for its strong drinks, French onion soup and lively atmosphere. Located across from the gate to the Presidio at Lyon and Lombard, generations of San Franciscans have gathered at Liverpool Lil's to watch Giants games and drink Guinness within its wood-paneled walls.


The Chron reports that the fire originally broke out in the residential units above the restaurant, spreading to the attic above the neighboring Travelodge motel. Still no word on the extent of the damage to Liverpool Lil's.
