SAN ANTONIO – Some residents are displaced after a fire broke out at a West Side apartment complex overnight, according to Bexar County officials.

The fire broke out around 2 a.m. at the Medio Springs Ranch apartments on Marbach Oaks.

County officials said the fire started in a first-floor apartment unit. Firefighters from Bexar County Emergency Services District 2 were able to evacuate residents from eight units in the building. The building’s sprinkler and alarm systems were already activated before firefighters arrived.

Crews contained the fire and prevented it from spreading to other buildings, officials said.

Residents of the unit where the fire started were not home at the time. The fire caused about $5,000 worth of fire and smoke damage to that apartment, officials said.

Two other units sustained some water damage, fire officials said.

No injuries were reported.

The Bexar County Fire Marshal’s Office is working to determine the cause of the fire.
