SAFD contains house fire to outside of structure

San Angelo Fire Department firefighters responded to a call for a structure fire Monday morning in the 500 block of East 39th Street. The homeowner noticed smoke before calling 9-1-1.

After they arrived on scene, firefighters were able to contain the fire to the outside of the home on its northeast corner.

“It stayed on the outside. It did not penetrate the interior of the home.” said SAFD Fire Investigator Joanna Jackson.

Jackson said the cause of the fire was unknown and the fire marshal’s office will continue to investigate.
