SUTHERLAND SPRINGS -- Fire officials are investigating the cause of an Oct. 10 blaze that leveled a recreational-vehicle trailer here. The fire broke out at approximately 11:30 a.m., at an RV park located on the site of the former OK Corral restaurant near the junction of S.H. 97 and U.S. 87.

Chief Edwin Baker of the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department said a man was asleep in the front portion of the trailer, while a female family member was at the rear. The female reported looking back and seeing flames in the middle of the trailer, Baker said. She called out to wake the man, who broke out a window to escape. The man suffered cuts to his face and upper torso. The Stockdale Emergency Medical Services treated him at the scene. The woman was not injured.

In addition to firefighters from Stockdale, crews from Sutherland Springs and La Vernia volunteer fire departments attended.

As of 1 p.m., a representative of the San Antonio Chapter of the American Red Cross was en route to offer assistance to the victims.
