The huge fire is said to have also affected an iconic World War II-era vessel, which prompted firefighters to go above and beyond in their efforts to stop the flames from further damaging the museum-ship.

A huge early Saturday fire, raised by the city's emergency services to four alarms, consumed a warehouse containing fish processing equipment at Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco, California, US.

Black smoke from the fire, which shot over 100 feet (30.5 metres) in the air, can be seen miles away, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Over 150 firefighters, who arrived to the scene in over 50 trucks, along with fireboats, succeeded in putting out the fire in the warehouse, called Shed C, as well as in preventing the flames from approaching the historic World War II-era ship ‘USS Jeremiah O’Brien’.

No injuries were reported at the warehouse or on the museum vessel, which sustained cosmetic damage after flames licked at it.

“I am very grateful,” said an employee who has worked on the ship for 20 years, cited by the outlet. “This ship, she’s something else. She’s been through a lot. She’s not going to be taken down by a shed fire.”

The San Francisco Fire Department said that investigations are underway to identify the reason for the fire.
