SAN ANTONIO — Emergency officials performed CPR Friday morning on one person after pulling them out of a burning structure, officials say.
Around 4 a.m., the San Antonio Fire Department responded to the 2000 block of Monterey for a structure fire.
When crews arrived, they found the structure on fire and started trying to put it out. About 15 minutes later, a person was seen being pulled out by firefighters, then CPR began.
Officials say a woman was taken to the hospital where she died. There were no other injuries reported and the home is a total loss.
Wind was a contributing factor in the fire spreading, officials said.
