San Antonio and suburban Firefighters had their hands full overnight, rushing to multiple fires in different parts of the city, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Firefighters were called for a fire on Thompson Place, which is on the west side, and when they arrived they found heavy smoke and fire coming out of a home.
Everybody got out safely, and the fire was traced to an electrical short.
About an hour later, crews answered an alarm on Misty Springs, which is on the northeast side near Kirby.
They encountered heavy smoke coming out of the first floor of a two story home. The residents were quickly evacuated and firefighters doused the flames in about 15 minutes. Arson investigators were called in to determine a case.
And, later, firefighters were called to a grass fire on I-10 and W.W. White Rd. on the east side. By the time they arrived, the fire had spread to an abandoned home, which was destroyed by the fire. Firefighters in this case were hampered by a lack of fire hydrants in the area, and had to truck in water.
Arson investigators are also on the scene of that fire.
