Home on San Andres Catches Fire

City engine crew 5 was among the first to respond to a fire on San Andres Street on Sunday evening.

No one was injured and flames were extinguished in 11 minutes, but six residents of a house on the 1700 block of San Andres Street have been displaced by fire. All had escaped the thick smoke and flames when city firefighters dragged their hoses into the home on Sunday evening, though the house had no working smoke detectors. The damage estimate was $100,000, and the cause is under investigation.
