Fire shuts down Southeast San Antonio Burger King

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – Flames were shooting through the roof of a Southeast Side Burger King when the first San Antonio fire crews arrived on the scene Monday morning.

“We could see an active fire on the roof and smoke,” said Woody Woodward with the San Antonio Fire Department.

Everyone had safely evacuated the building on South W.W. White Road at Rigsby Avenue by the time firefighters arrived around 9:30 a.m.

“It was determined that the fire started above the flame broiler units,” said Woodward.  “It looks like the grease fire traveled up through the vents and up to the roof.”

There’s no word on when the Burger King restaurant will reopen.
