SAN ANTONIO –  San Antonio fire crews responded Wednesday morning to an apartment fire on the city's far West Side.

The fire was reported in the 7700 block of Potranco Road, found near Loop 410 and W. Military Drive.

Firefighters said they think the fire may have started from a cigarette that rolled from the balcony area of a third floor apartment.

Officials said they are working to make sure the balcony does not continue to smolder.

8 apartment units were evacuated as a precaution. Many residents have now begun returning to their homes.

One person was checked by EMS as a precaution for smoke inhalation.
