Fighting fires at the water works

Let's hope they weren't hampered by water restrictions.
A fire at a San Antonio Water System Station on Sunday has caused an estimated $100,000 worth of damage and fire officials said it may take a few weeks to fix.

It was around noon on Sunday, when a fire crew driving back from a meeting downtown actually spotted the smoke coming from the SAWS pumping station at the Olmos Basin and responded right away.

Fire officials said the chlorine at the station was not effected [sic] and that they put the fire out fairly quickly, but still, crews had to deal with a lot of smoke.
