LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - An empty house in south Laredo went up in flames on Monday.

Laredo police reported to the 2200 block of Santa Clara Street just before 8 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, they found a fire that ended up damaging the front bedroom and front exterior wall.

One neighbor says he woke up to the scary sight of smoke from his window.

“When I woke up, the smoke was already on so I didn’t see any flames,” said Israel Salazar. “So that’s all I can tell you.”

A few blocks away, a Laredo fire unit headed to the scene was involved in a vehicle accident, causing a southbound lane of Highway 83 and Jaime Zapata to be closed off to clear the scene of debris.

No injuries were reported.
