An early morning fire destroyed a home in South Austin on Friday.
The fire started just after 6 a.m. on Dawson Road near South Lamar and Barton Springs.
Crews say by the time they arrived, flames were shooting out through the roof. More crews were called when embers started flying through the neighborhood threatening nearby homes.
"[There was] a structure on one side that did suffer some heat damage and some fire control damage,” AFD Battalion Chief Palmer Buck said. “There were two people home that residence that we had to evacuate."
No one was injured in either home. Fire investigators are trying to determine what started the blaze.
