A storage facility had a pallet fire on July 9 at 10pm. The east side of the facility was nearly destroyed when a cluster of pallets caught fire.
The San Antonio Fire Department Assistant Chief Oscar Gonzalez said the blaze burned a few hundred pallets out of the thousands at the facility. It could have been much worse.
"There was big potential here," he said. "There was a big fuel load."
The San Antonio Fire Department was able to extinguish the fire within 45 minutes. No injuries were reported.
