SAN ANTONIO -- Ten families were displaced early Saturday morning after firefighters say a two-alarm fire ripped through 16 units at a northeast-side apartment complex.

Firefighters responded to the Villa Del Valencia Apartments, 13656 O'Connor Road, around 1 a.m. Saturday.

Residents said there was a fight at the apartments just before the fire started.

I just heard somebody said stop hitting her or stop it, I don t know exactly what that was about, Angelo Munoz said.

The apartments are owned and operated by the San Antonio Housing Authority as a mixed income housing program. The housing authority said they are relocating 10 families, including 10 adults and 20 children, with the help of the Red Cross.
