Patients evacuated from 2-alarm high rise fire
Elevators not working at NW Side medical building
SAN ANTONIO – Several patients were evacuated Monday from a two-alarm fire at a high rise medical building on the city's Northwest Side.
The fire started around 3:30 p.m. in the 8100 block of Datapoint Drive.
It started in an electrical panel and was quickly extinguished.
However, that panel controlled the power to the elevators and backup lighting system.
About a dozen patients in wheelchairs had to be evacuated down the stairs.
No one was injured.
