SAN ANTONIO – A fire caused heavy damage Wednesday morning to an apartment complex on the city’s North Side.

When firefighters arrived at the complex in the 3200 block of Nacogdoches Road, they found heavy flames and called in a second alarm.

San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said between 60 to 100 occupants will need to find another place to live. The Red Cross will help them find temporary shelter, Hood said.

No injuries were reported but firefighters rescued about 10 pets, Hood said.

This is at least the third large fire reported at the complex since September 2019. A lightning strike caused a fire at the complex last April.

The cause of Wednesday’s fire is under investigation.
