A two alarm fire has scrambled more than thirty fire units to a building at San Pedro and Cypress, just south of San Antonio College, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, they found smoke and flames pouring out of the building, which houses several businesses, including a sports bar. The fire apparently started at a building next door that is used for a Halloween haunted house and is currently empty.
The fire may have started when a thermostat kicked on a furnace, or transients may have set the fire in an attempt to keep warm.
Crews called for extra companies due to the size of the building, and in an effort to keep the flames from spreading.
So far there are no reports of any injuries.
