SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Fire Department crews responded to a large fire at a retirement community on the city's north side Friday morning.

13 units were dispatched to the blaze at Independence Village, a retirement community in the 2500 block of Huebner Road near Stone Oak. 

Officials on the scene told KENS 5's Jenny Suniga there were no injuries.

According to officials, the fire completely consumed one building which housed two duplexes.  There was reportedly one couple living in each duplex. 

Fire officials said it took nearly an hour and a half to put out the flames.  Arson investigators were on the scene working to determine the cause of the fire.
