A blaze tore through a San Antonio apartment complex early Friday, leaving one man without a dwelling, per officials. The fire, which began at about 12:30 a.m. in the 600 block of S.

The affected resident was fortunately unharmed. No other injuries from the fire were reported. An investigation into the cause of the fire is currently underway, confirmed by local authorities.

Citing the need for safety and an examination of structural integrity, officials have not yet allowed other residents to re-enter the building, leaving some temporarily stranded without homes after the late-night fire.
