San Francisco, California (CNN) A massive fire destroyed a high rise building under construction in San Francisco Tuesday.

Division Fire Chief Matthew McNaughton says they are concerned that more of the building may come down…

“There is scaffolding all around the building. A lot of the building itself mostly collapsed inward, but we are concerned about the scaffolding coming down, and it's possible that some of the structure could come down, as well.”

150 firefighters battled the blaze at its peak.

One firefighter was taken to the hospital for treatment for a minor burn.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
