Fire drives residents out of home near downtown

SAN ANTONIO – A family was driven out of their home following a fire that broke out Friday morning.

San Antonio firefighters responded to the blaze just before 4:30 a.m. at the home in the 200 block of Pendleton Ave., not far from South Brazos Street.

A battalion chief at the scene said people who live inside the home were able to evacuate without injury.

The fire appeared to have started in a back room but spread to the attic.

Firefighters had difficulty gaining access to the fire because of what they described as a hoarding situation. Fire trucks were also delayed in reaching the fire because of a passing train.

The family will not be able to live in the home for now, fire officials said.

SAFD plans to call in code compliance to investigate the home. Arson investigators were also called to the home, the chief said.
