SAN ANTONIO — A cyberattack is being blamed for a fire that devastated an apartment complex near the Texas-Mexico border and forced the evacuation of more than 4,000 people.
The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for parts of the San Antonio metropolitan area from Interstate 10 to Interstate 30 as the blaze spread across the San Pedro Valley.
Officials said they believe the fire started when a heat wave in the area sparked a leaky roof in a bedroom that was not ventilated.
The flames destroyed about a third of an apartment building, and a third-floor apartment building that was vacant was also destroyed, according to the National Weather Services.
Officials say they believe more than 1,000 homes were affected by the blaze.
The fire is now under control and no injuries have been reported.
Fire officials are still trying to determine the cause of the fire, which has been dubbed the worst fire disaster in U.S. history.
