SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio firefighters quickly knocked down a fire that created a small explosion inside a home on Wednesday morning.
Fire officials responded to the call for a ringing alarm just before 4:30 a.m. in the 6000 block of Beaver Trail on the Northwest Side.
The fire was found in the attic and no one was in the home, a battalion chief at the scene said. No one was injured in the fire.
The fire appears to have started in the electrical or HVAC system, the battalion chief said.
As a result, there was a small explosion. The HVAC system sustained damage, but fire officials said the home is still liveable.
Arson investigators were not called to the fire.
