By 4:28 a.m. PDT the warehouse fire was classified a two-alarm fire, and by 4:54 a.m. PDT it was classified four-alarm. (Alarm classifications indicate the seriousness of a fire and are generally determined by the amount of resources dispatched to the scene.)

While the fire spread from the original warehouse to two other buildings, firefighters were able to prevent the fire from reaching the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien, according to tweets from from the San Francisco Fire Department. Officials also reported that multiple walls of the original building have collapsed.

At least 130 firefighters have been dispatched to the scene, as well as fireboats and Coast Guard and Police Marine units to help monitor the water around the Pier, according to officials.
