SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Five people and their two pets all managed to escape as fire burned through their home on San Antonio’s Southeast side.

The fire in the 1400 block of South Pine Street was called in at around 7 P.M. Sunday.

Flames were shooting through the roof when firefighters arrived. The design of the structure made it difficult to get to the attic so crews used some chainsaws to gain access.

The five occupants and their pets were not injured in the fire but they will have to find a new place to live.

The Red Cross will help them relocate.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
