WATCH: Flying J Truck Stop Burns to the Ground

This week in San Antonio, smoke and flames could be seen for miles as a Flying J and Denny’s burned to the ground. The San Antonio Fire Department arrived to the popular truck stop Thursday morning to find a massive fire engulfing the buildings.

According to KSAT, the fire began sometime around 5 a.m. on December 1. SAFD Fire Chief Charles Hood told KSAT that he received word about the restaurant fire around 5:15 a.m. and responded as quick as he could. He also stated that the fire was being fed by the outside winds and the grease from the kitchen. These factors helped cause the flames to grow and eventually consume both buildings.

Both Flying J and Denny’s buildings were devastated by the roaring fires, but luckily no one was injured. All customers and workers inside were able to exit safe and sound. KSAT reported that there were 50-60 semi-trucks parted in the lot, and that they were able to exit safely as the fire spread.
