SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Fire Department is investigating a morning fire at an abandoned church on the city’s East Side.
Firefighters responded to the call of flames just after 6 a.m. Friday in the 3300 block of Roland Road, not far from Rigsby Avenue and Pecan Valley Drive.
According to firefighters, the fire began in the building and flames spread near a brush line in the back. The building showed signs of a potential collapse, so firefighters couldn’t go inside.
Firefighters were able to quickly put out the fire. A safety team is now assessing the condition of the church.
Arson investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
