Cars outside burning mobile home cause concern for firefighters

Despite vehicles in driveway, no one was home

BEXAR COUNTY, Texas – Firefighters putting out a fire in a mobile home in Southeast Bexar County Tuesday morning believed for at least a few minutes that they were in a life-or-death situation.

When they arrived at the scene around 3:30 a.m., they noticed flames coming from the windows of the mobile home and saw several cars parked in the driveway.

They said they believed that was an indication that someone still might be inside the burning structure, located in the 23000 block of Fawn Trail.
