Battalion chief says ‘it’s going to be a complete rebuild of the house’

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Fire Department responded to a call for a structure fire around 10 a.m. Saturday.

Firefighters arrived at the scene and found a residential home on fire in the 300 block of Kenmar Drive, not far from I-10 and E. Houston Street.

Battalion Chief Mark Trevino said firefighters were able to extinguish the flames quickly but noted the home had extensive damage.

“It’s going to be a complete rebuild of the house, there’s a lot of internal damage,” Trevino said.

The homeowners were home when the fire started but were able to make it out.

Trevino said there were no victims and no animals were harmed.

He believes the fire started in the bedroom and spread to the attic, causing it to spread throughout the entire home.
