SAN ANTONIO – One person was hospitalized following a fire at a far West Side home late Monday night, according to fire officials.

The fire was called in just after 9:30 p.m. at a home in the 2500 block of White Deer Lane, not far from both Loop 1604 and Marbach Road.

Firefighters said when they arrived, they found heavy flames showing from the house. They said a bunch of debris from the fire also made it difficult to shut off the utilities to the home.

Fire officials said four people, a man, woman and two children, were all inside at the time of the fire. They and their dogs made it safely out.

The man, however, did have some burns and was taken by ambulance to an area hospital to be checked out. His condition is not currently known.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The house is considered a total loss.

The Bexar County Fire Department, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office and EMS all responded to the call.

The American Red Cross will be assisting the displaced family.
