SAN FRANCISCO — A newspaper reports that a San Francisco home that collapsed and slid down a hill belongs to a developer who once served as president of the city’s Building Inspection Commission.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the home in the city’s Twin Peaks neighborhood is owned by 67-year-old Mel Murphy, a partner in Murphy & O’Brien Real Estate Investments. It was under renovation, a project that the Chronicle says some neighbors were not happy with.
Police say the home came down around 10:30 p.m. Monday, leading to the evacuations of at least one residence. The cause of the collapse is under investigation.
The Chronicle said Murphy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
