SAN ANTONIO – A two-alarm fire forced a family from their home early Sunday morning.

The fire happened at the house in the 200 block of Pima.

Smoke gushed from the eaves when firefighters arrived, and everyone inside had gotten out.

Firefighters went to work on the fire, but putting the flames out would take them more than an hour.

They say arcing electrical wires and water problems made the job more difficult.

Fire crews had to call a second alarm for manpower as they fought the flames.

Investigators think electrical problems started the fire.

Damage from that fire is set at $200,000.
