The SOMA building that caught fire late Tuesday also houses the city's only licensed medical marijuana delivery service, which has, fortunately, been able to continue operations.
Firefighters responded to a two-alarm blaze at a four-story building on 11th Street at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. The fire displaced 20 people, including some employees at The Green Cross, according to spokeswoman Caren Woodson. However, pot deliveries continued unabated Wednesday — and it will be business as usual unless city authorities deem the building uninhabitable.
Woodson, who also lives in the building, said her apartment, as well as the Green Cross's first-floor offices, are unscathed, and that the fire — which authorities are still investigating — started on an outside balcony.
