SAN ANTONIO (AP) A fire that began in a Dumpster and spread to a nearby apartment building has left six San Antonio families without a home.

The San Antonio Express-News reports the fire started Monday evening in the Dumpster before consuming four vehicles and then moving to the building.

Authorities say it's not clear how the fire started, but explained wind gusts helped push the flames.

The building was evacuated and no injuries were reported. Firefighters rescued three pets along with a hedgehog and two reptiles.

A second building was evacuated as a precaution but wasn't damaged.
