SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio firefighters say an electrical problem appears to be what sparked a fire inside a South Side home.
Two people who live in the home, located in the 200 block of Crane Avenue, were able to escape safely after the fire broke out around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.
When fire crews arrived, they found heavy fire in the front room of the home.
They say they had a difficult time accessing the other rooms because of a large amount of clutter.
Firefighters eventually were able to extinguish the fire which they said seemed to be centered around a sofa.
They say they found an extension cord underneath the sofa that may have played a role in it.
An investigation team was called in to look into the cause of the fire.
