SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio firefighters rescued a man and battled massive flames that damaged three homes on the city’s East Side early Thursday morning.

The fire was called in around 6 a.m. in the 1900 block of Nolan Street, not far from North Walters Street.

By the time firefighters arrived, they found a home fully engulfed.

Two homes had heavy damage and a duplex on the back side also had exposure, fire officials said.

Firefighters rescued a man from the house where the fire started. He suffered burns and was transported to a hospital. Officials did not say that man’s condition.

The rescue was the third for the same crew in the last two days. They also pulled a man from a fire yesterday on Lakefront Drive.

Firefighters said six people, including some teenagers and two dogs escaped the house next door.

According to the San Antonio Fire Department website, as many as 18 units answered the call.

The cause of the fire is not currently known.
