SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio firefighters say a house on the city’s Northeast Side is a total loss following a fire early Monday morning.

The fire was called in around 12:30 a.m. at a home in the 12700 block of El Sendero Street, not far from Nacogdoches Road and Morgan’s Wonderland.

The people who live there said they do have another place to stay. The home however, is considered a total loss.

The San Antonio Fire Department and the San Antonio Police Department both responded to the call.

The investigation into the fire is ongoing.
