SAN ANTONIO – An apartment building holding eight units was destroyed Tuesday morning during a large fire.
Fire crews arrived at the Springwood apartments in the 1300 block of Gardina St., where they found heavy flames that were visible from Interstate 10.
Authorities said tenants were able to get out safely, but one man was checked out for smoke inhalation.
Paramedics also took a pregnant woman to the hospital out of precaution.
All eight units were destroyed in the blaze, authorities said. The fire did threaten the buildings on either side, but firefighters stopped it from spreading.
At this time it is unclear how the fire started. The fire was reported around 6:15 a.m. and more than 30 SAFD units responded.
