Tags: news

A house on the far North Side went up in flames, drawing a large response from area fire crews. The San Antonio Fire Department was called to the 10000 block of Dreamland around 7 p.m. Saturday. When firefighters first arrived, flames engulfed the home and made their way to the attic. Fire crews battled the flames from outside of the home and inside of the home, once it was safe to make entry. A man and his dog safely escaped the home uninjured. They'll be staying with friends, as their relatives are out of town. The cause of the fire is believed to be electrical, but it is still under investigation.
