Fire destroys restaurant on the South side of San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A restaurant on San Antonio’s South side is a total loss after an early morning fire burned through the building.

Firefighters were called to Taqueria El Tapatio De Jalisco on Roosevelt Avenue at around 3 A.M.

The fire had a lengthy head start by the time crews arrived.

At one point, firefighters had to evacuate because of a major propane leak.

Once that was under control, they continued efforts to extinguish the flames.

When the fire was out, crews entered the building to look for a cause. They have determined that it started in the kitchen area but the exact source is still under investigation.

No injuries were reported.
