VIDEOS: Firefighters are trying to take down a massive fire with little water in the Stone Oak area. The Bexar-Bulverde Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) responded to the fire first, which was reported at the Cortland View apartment complex off TPC Parkway around 1 p.m.
Bexar-Bulverde VFD Chief Jerry Bialick said his crews immediately began to investigate and could smell smoke.
Once they found the fire had already been in between the floors of the apartments, they jumped into fighting mode.
However, they soon realized they would have to call for more help.
“It already spread so major concern out here was frozen hydrants,” Bialick explained. “So, we have no water.”
Bialick said his crews shuttled in water through tenders and tankers.
“We've got tenders from all over the area here,” Bialick said. “We actually got some, we got more coming in to shovel water into us.”
We’re told though the crews are getting water, it’s clearly not enough as the fire continues to burn down the complex.
