SAN ANTONIO -

Three people were killed in house fires in Southwest Bexar County on Monday, law enforcement officials told KSAT 12 News.

It wasn't immediately known who the victims were.

The fire began at one home in the 8100 block of Old Pearsall around 2 p.m.

Wind gusts of up to 50 mph caused the fire to spread to two adjacent homes as well as across the street where two other homes sustained fire damage.

An 83-year-old woman who was inside one of the homes was taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation.
