SAN ANTONIO -

Firefighters battled a massive blaze just west of downtown San Antonio Monday night and arson is suspected.

The fire on Briscoe Alley and North Colorado comes days after another suspicious house fire about a mile and a half away.

The house was fully engulfed in flames when fire crews arrived just after 10 p.m. Firefighters finally contained the blaze after 25 minutes.

Investigators have not said if the home is vacant. No injuries were reported and damages were unknown, San Antonio fire officials said.
