Two Fires Keep Firefighters Busy Independence Day Night


Firefighters were busy battling fires on opposite ends of the county overnight, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The first alarm came in in the 6300 block of Encanto Point in Kirby. When firefighters got to the home, they found fire and heavy smoke coming out of the rear of the structure.

No one was home at the time, and firefighters managed to contain the fire to the rear of the home. No word on a cause. Windcrest and Converse fire departments were called in to help.

About an hour later, San Antonio firefighters were called to a fire at Monterrey Iron and Metal scrap yard in the 2300 block of Quintana Rd. on the city's southwest side.

They disovered heavy flames and smoke coming from a building on the property.

Fire officials say an excavator machine caught fire, and ignited some rubber tires inside the structure.

Nobody was hurt and arson investigators are looking into what caused it.
