WOAI Fire Likely Caused By Electrical Short

The fire that knocked San Antonio NBC affiliate WOAI off the air Tuesday was likely caused by an electrical short, according to the station.

The fire began on the second floor of the station’s building around 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, during the morning newscast. The building was evacuated and programming went to black. WOAI anchors reported on the fire for sister station KABB, the San Antonio Fox affiliate.

WOAI’s programming resumed around 4:00 p.m. Tuesday. With the second floor of the building still closed, the station has set up a temporary news set in the station’s parking lot.
