A 4-alarm fire dubbed the Toland Fire Saturday burned in an industrial area at Toland Street and Evans Avenue in San Francisco's India Basin, destroying two buildings, officials said.

The blaze was first reported around 9 p.m. a block west of Interstate Highway 280 after fire officials received multiple 911 calls. A restaurant and an industrial building burned as high winds blew smoke across the freeway, hampering visibility.

A firefighter said that the calls enabled a quick response from fire crews, and as he was approaching he could see the fire from Daly City.

One of the buildings involved was a restaurant that was under renovation, authorities said. Nobody was in the restaurant, but a relative of the owner was upstairs. That person got out safely, officials said.
