A three-alarm fire at 1333 Columbus Avenue last night forced the evacuation of long-running pub Fiddler’s Green and upstairs apartments. One firefighter sustained minor injuries while the SFFD worked to extinguish the blaze.
A fire department representative reported extensive damage to the bar, a three-level establishment known for its classic pub feel and floor inlaid with pennies. The 1333 Columbus building was constructed in 1901 and survived the 1906 earthquake and fires.

Other recent fires in historic area structures have roiled the North Beach/Fisherman’s Wharf this year: This past St. Patrick’s day, the entire 650 Union Street block along Washington Square Park erupted in flames, displacing 10 ground floor retail tenants.
