SAN ANTONIO — Over 40 fire units responded to a two-alarm blaze at a house just north of downtown San Antonio on Saturday evening.

The century-old home is believed to have been abandoned. Structural collapses caused by the inferno caused firefighters to retreat and fight it from outside the building at the corner of West Russell and North Flores.

The first of two alarms sounded just after 6 p.m. and soon after the first companies arrived, they found ceilings collapsing as flames poured from the roof.
