The station reports "At approximately 5:00 a.m. a fire alarm was triggered at WOAI-TV, and the building was evacuated. Fire units arrived shortly thereafter. The fire was contained to second floor offices. We expect to have electricity restored to the building by noon, and we anticipate having WOAI-TV on the air later this afternoon," explained WOAI-TV General Manager John Seabers. "We are grateful no one was injured. We will have updates on our station’s status through our Facebook pages and our web site woai.com."

Flames could be seen shooting from second floor windows of the Downtown television station, but firefighters were able to get the blaze under control. 

"We are grateful for the quick action by the San Antonio Fire Department, that everyone made it out safely and our viewers for reaching out to us with your caring words on Facebook," Seabers said.
