SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio firefighters are trying to figure out what caused a fire inside a converted garage at a home on the city’s South Side late Monday night.

The fire was called in just before 10 p.m. at a home in the 500 block of Hot Wells Boulevard, not far from South New Braunfels Avenue and Interstate 37.

Firefighters said when they arrived, they found a fire in a garage that was converted into two apartments. They got a quick knock down of the fire.

Fire officials said one person was living in each apartment, but they are now displaced. Nobody was home at the time of the fire. The cause is not currently known.

A fire investigation team will try to determine the exact cause.

Both the San Antonio Fire Department and the San Antonio Police Department responded to the call.

Damage is estimated at around $30,000, the SAFD said.
