On Sunday evening, the San Antonio Fire Department responded to an east-side house fire.

The fire happened on the 4100 block of Scarlet Oak Drive.

This time of year is a devastating time for any family to have to deal with the aftermath of a house fire. SAFD knew this and made sure to save the gifts that were under the family’s Christmas tree before they were destroyed by the fire.

SAFFE Officer Tina Castillo captured the heartwarming moment.
