Fans in San Francisco seem to be relatively calm in Super Bowl defeat.

Not like when the Giants won the World Series in late October. Back then, a city but was set on fire, cars were overturned and bonfires lit up trash containers and streets. About three dozen people were arrested.

But despite a large number of people on sidewalks, most appeared to be well-behaved in the Mission District after the 49ers lost 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens. Police declined to say how many arrests had been made.

``City-wide, everything seemed to be pretty good,'' Officer Carlos Manfredi said. ``We did have a couple of flare-ups in the Mission District but otherwise everyone seemed to be behaving themselves.''
