A massive fire at an apartment complex in San Antonio, Texas burned for 14 hours Thursday night as firefighters discovered that nearby hydrants were empty.
Water outages from a snowstorm and record low temperatures caused Texas to struggle to find clean drinking water and left many critical fire hydrants in the state without water. Thousands of Texans are still without power.
The apartment building in San Antonio started burning around 1:00 PM Thursday and collapsed later that night, ABC News reported. Once firefighters realized that private fire hydrants near the building were empty, 15 water tender trucks were brought in and took turns filling up with water from public fire hydrants around 2,000 feet away, officials said.
