SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio fire investigators are working to determine the cause of a house fire on the city’s Southwest Side early Thursday morning.

The fire was called in around 2:45 a.m. in the 600 block of Jennings Avenue, not far from South Zarzamora and Frio City Road.

Firefighters said when they arrived, they found flames showing from the abandoned home.

Fire officials said they were able to put the fire out quickly and without incident. No injuries were reported.
