1 firefighter killed, 2 seriously hurt in San Antonio fire

A San Antonio firefighter was killed and two more were injured in a major fire Thursday night at a strip mall.

The fire broke out at Ingram Park shopping center just after 9 p.m.

Two firefighters went missing during the evacuation, Hood said.

Hood said two other firefighters were transported to area hospitals - one a priority one transport and the other a priority two.

However, San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said both are expected to be alright.

Close to 60 firefighting units were at the scene of the fire located at 6776 Ingram Rd. "We started having structural collapses, and we had to go defensive", he said. One was critically injured and the other was reportedly in serious condition. Because the situation was becoming too unsafe, Hood said the rest of the firefighters had to evacuate the building, leaving Deem behind. He said they don't ever want to leave a firefighter behind, but they would have lost 15 or 20 more firefighters had they stayed inside. However, conditions inside the building rapidly changed and may have prevented Deem from escaping.
