2 San Antonio fires prompted hotel evacuations

Dozens of firefighters have battled two downtown San Antonio building blazes in apparent unrelated incidents.

The San Antonio Fire Department says nobody was hurt in Wednesday night's fire that destroyed a vacant building or in a commercial building fire early Thursday. Authorities are trying to determine the causes of both blazes.

Investigators say the initial fire in a two-story building prompted evacuation of a neighboring Travelers Hotel. The second fire happened several hours later about a block away, forcing the evacuation of the nearby Indigo Hotel.

Department spokesman Christian Bove says there does not appear to be a connection between the two fires.
