Statement from John Seabers, General Manager of WOAI-TV, on the fire this morning at the station’s building at 1031 Navarro:
At approximately 5:00 a.m., a fire alarm was triggered at WOAI-TV, and the building was evacuated. Fire units arrived shortly thereafter. The fire was contained to 2nd floor offices. We expect to have electricity restored to the building by noon, and we anticipate having WOAI-TV on the air later this afternoon. We are grateful no one was injured. We will have updates on our station’s status through our Facebook pages and our web site woai.com.
We are grateful for the quick action by the San Antonio Fire Department, that everyone made it out safely and our viewers for reaching out to us with your caring words on Facebook.
