High winds create challenges for fire crews in San Antonio

On March 17th, 2023, San Antonio experienced high winds which created difficulties for firefighters battling several blazes throughout the city.

One fire broke out on Pleasanton Bluff near Loop 410 on the South Side of the city.

A neighbor called for help when they saw flames shooting out of a two-story home.

Despite the efforts of firefighters, the home was destroyed.

Another fire broke out on the city’s west side, at a home on Monterey Street just after four in the morning.

Despite the high winds, firefighters were able to extinguish the flames.

They rescued a woman from the home and performed CPR on her, but unfortunately, she later died.

The cause of both fires is still being investigated.

In a separate incident, a man fell into a manhole just northwest of downtown, apparently attempting to reach an area where homeless people often camp out.

Firefighters rescued him and he was taken to the hospital with a leg injury, but is expected to recover.

The Weather Authority is also predicting more rain and possible snowflakes for the area, so residents are encouraged to download the KSAT Weather Authority app for updates.

As always, residents are urged to stay up to date with all the latest news and weather by subscribing to KSAT 12.
