Home destroyed by fire in far West Bexar County

Fire was called in just before 10 p.m. in 6800 block of Calle Fincias

BEXAR COUNTY – The Bexar County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating after a fire destroyed an abandoned home in far West Bexar County late Sunday night.

The fire was called in just before 10 p.m. at a home on Calle El Popo, not far from Highway 90 and Montgomery Road.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived on scene to find the home fully engulfed.

Authorities said the house burned to the ground in roughly 15 minutes. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to just the one property.

There were no reported injuries.

According to the Bexar County fire marshal, the fire was intentionally set.

The blaze occurred nearly a week after two mobile homes in the neighborhood were set on fire. The suspect in those fires was arrested Feb. 24 after he allegedly confessed to the arson.

The fire marshal said he does not believe last week’s and Sunday night’s fires are related.
