SAN ANTONIO – A massive fire at a Northwest Side generator business prompted a large emergency response and led to the evacuations of 80 dogs at a nearby kennel.

The second-alarm fire happened around 4:30 p.m. Friday in the 5800 block of Rocky Point Drive, not far from I-10 and De Zevala.

As of around 5:15 p.m., firefighters were seen spraying down the building as heavy smoke clouds came from the roof. Over 30 fire units responded to the call.

San Antonio Fire Department said crews are going on the defense from the outside of the building as they work to contain the flames.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is unknown, though fire officials said it could have been accidental.
