Church on Southeast Side catches fire, no one hurt

By Jared Hoehing - Associate Producer

SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio firefighters responded to a fire at a church on the city's Southeast Side early Sunday morning.

The fire broke out around 5 a.m. at the Highland Hills Baptist Church, not far from the intersection of East Southcross and Goliad when a storage room started smoking near a classroom area.

Firefighters responded quickly to put the fire out, but the fire did end up causing nearly $40,000 worth of damage.

Investigators said the fire was accidental, perhaps caused by a candle left out overnight.

Nobody was injured in the fire.
