San Francisco firefighters contained a 1-alarm blaze at the famous North Beach Liguria Bakery on Friday.

San Francisco firefighters said Friday they saved a 112-year-old North Beach bakery from extensive damage.

Crews responded just before 11 a.m. to the Liguria Bakery at the corner of Stockton and Filbert streets, the San Francisco Fire Department said. The bakery declined to comment when reached by phone.

"Thanks in part to the efforts of firefighters, this fire resulted in confined damages to the kitchen and bakery, no extension to neighboring structures, no injuries and no displaced," the department tweeted.

The blaze was contained just after 12:20 p.m., SFFD confirmed.

The Liguria Bakery, which specializes in focaccia bread, uses an oven that reaches temperatures of 1,000 degrees, fire officials added.
