Arson investigators looking into cause of fire outside SW Side home

No one home when fire broke out on porch

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio arson investigators are looking for the cause of a fire that broke out Monday morning on the porch of a Southwest Side home.

No one was home when the fire started shortly before 4 a.m. in the 1300 block of Keats Street.

The home is actually more of a freestanding apartment behind a main house.

Several people who were in the main house evacuated during the height of the fire.

After determining there was no longer a danger and that their home had not been damaged, firefighters allowed the family to go back inside.

No one was injured.

At the apartment, arson investigators appeared to focus on items from inside the home.

Firefighters said they believed the fire may have been accidental, but they called in arson investigators to make sure that was the case.
