I can't find anything on the news but there were at least 7 ladder trucks, an ambulance, and the police had the entire block of blanco, east of bitters, blocked off. My first thought was it was a gas leak but I haven't seen anything on the news.

Any ideas?

Blanco runs north and south of Bitters. There are apartments to the north and a Walgreens to the south.

You should have looked at the active fire runs at sanantonio.gov while this was happening. There is no public archive of that info.

It helps because now the next time people see something they know how to immediately look up what's going on. Maybe this time you should have

All I meant here was that the next time this happens, you'll know how to look it up as it is happening. There's literally no way to look it up now. After that, I was correcting your directional mistake and giving you details on the correct directions.

If you prefer not to arm yourself with the info about how and when to look this up next time or to understand the difference between east and north, I guess we'll just not bother to offer you any more links or help.

Sorry Bo, I read your comments and emphasis with a negative tone. I expected something more like "I'm not sure but next time this happens check out the City website for emergency services."

Plus I'm directionally challenged... it was on the "410 side" - not the "1604 side" of blanco & bitters.
