Arson team investigating grass fire on Southwest Side


SAN ANTONIO – The arson team is investigating a grass fire that damaged an estimated $50,000 worth of property on the Southwest Side on Saturday.

Crews were called out to a lot across from Palo Alto College along Loop 410.

Battalion Chief Russell Johnson said the grass fire was about 2,500 feet away from the highway, so crews had a hard time getting water to the scene.

No one was injured, but a portable building that was used as a classroom was destroyed, and several tractor trailers were also damaged.
