SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio firefighters are trying to determine the cause of a fire at a wine business on the North Side.
The fire broke out at around 4:15 a.m. on Thursday at JS Fine Wines at the business complex in the 600 block of W. Rhapsody Drive, not far from Highway 281.
Firefighters said they had a tough time navigating the building and it took them a while to find the source of the smoke. They had to open up the building from several different angles to get to the area where the fire was, SAFD said.
They eventually found the fire in a back storage room, but the cause is unknown. That storage room was destroyed but the rest of the building was mostly undamaged.
No one was inside the business and there were no injuries.
The battalion chief said the layout of the building put the crews in danger, as it had add-ons.
“This is the kind of building where firefighters get hurt,” he said.
The estimated cost of damage is unknown at this time.
