SAN ANTONIO – A mobile home fire in Southeast Bexar County early Friday morning sent a family of six out into the frigid cold.
A man who lived in the home, located in the 5000 block of Trout Lane, told firefighters he woke up to popping noises after 3:30 a.m.
Fire crews initially found heavy smoke inside the home, but they say the wind caused fire to spread quickly throughout it.
At one point, there were flames shooting through the roof.
Firefighters used an aerial ladder truck to pour water on the fire and douse the flames.
They say it appears an electrical problem is what caused the fire.
Although the family—a couple and four children—all made it out safely, they say they are still missing a puppy.
Firefighters say the American Red Cross will be helping the family with shelter and clothing.
