SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio police are looking for a suspect connected to an overnight house fire on the city's west side.

The fire started around 2 a.m. at a home on Gus Garcia near South Frio Street.

Fire officials said the fire started on the porch and then quickly spread to the attic.

Investigators said a woman living there heard someone walking around her window and then a loud pop before her window shattered.

Her husband went to open the front door, but the fire was too high. So the couple grabbed their baby and ran out the back door of the house.

Three puppies died, and three other dogs survived.

When firefighters arrived on the scene, the front of the house was fully engulfed in flames. They were able to put the fire out within 30 minutes.

Arson investigators were called in to figure out exactly what sparked the blaze.

Police said they were searching for a man who was seen running from the house, but they could not locate him.

Damages are estimated to be around $30,000.
