John Robinson and other firefighters from the previous shift. Late Friday morning, Brinkkoeter said the Seguin Avenue fire appeared to have been caused by an over-used extension cord. “It appears to be accidental — surge protectors plugged into extension cords, running an excessive load," Brinkkoeter said. Closed doors initially con fined the fire, which enabled the residents to escape harm before Williams rescued them, Brinkkoeter said. “It’s a very fortunate situation. He was able to get everyone out without injury. A youngster and mother could have been trapped by a rapidly moving fire,” Brinkkoeter said. No smoke alarms were seen. Brinkkoeter warned that smoke alarms with fresh batteries are essential for home safety. “Even if nothing’s plugged into an extension cord, heat’s building up,” Brinkkoeter said. “Those things do catch on fire. This is very unfortunate. These people had no insurance. It’s a real hurt on the family.” The Olympian Drive fire, Brinkkoeter said, appeared to be electrical in origin. Those residents would not be displaced from their home, he said. “We used fans to air that home out,” Brinkkoeter said. The Seguin Avenue family would be displaced, however, because of smoke and water damage to their apartment. Susan Walker, a New Braunfels-based volunteer for the American Red Cross, said her agency was assessing the needs of the family Friday. “We’ve taken an initial report,” Walker said. “The fire department said the home would be uninhabitable, so we ll certainly help. Our disaster team is en route, and we’re working to determine what assistance will need to be provided.” The Red Cross helps with clothing, temporary lodging if needed, and food and medical needs. Brinkkoeter said the 18-wheeler fire apparently was caused by a malfunction with the electrical brakes on a refrigerated produce trailer. Northbound 1-35 had to be shut down temporarily at Texas 46 as firemen worked to put out the blaze, which had spread into the cargo of the vehicle. “The interstate northbound is still reduced to one lane,” Brinkkoeter said at 10:30 a.m. “It’s disrupted traffic all the way to Schertz." Traffic began flowing smoothly about 2 p.m. DAVID INGRAM/Herald-Zeitung New Braunfels firefighters work their way through a smoke-filled building at 635 S. Seguin Ave. that caught fire Friday. Holiday Snowman Collectibles Six featured Snowmen A new collectible each week PARKING CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Moratorium denied last month restaurant located on its property. The sale would relieve the museum of a financial burden, museum officials say. “We’re under extreme financial circumstances because of our inability to sell the property,” said Bill McNeal, museum board member. But potential buyers have shied away from completing a deal for the restaurant because of the museum’s inadequate off-street parking, McNeal said. City code regulates the number of parking spaces that must be available Al any business located within city limits. To compensate for its parking deficit, the museum leases spaces from neighboring businesses. Potential buyers of the restau rant, however, are concerned the parking leases are too unstable — they are afraid neighboring business will withdraw their leases, which could force the restaurant to close. - The risk of investing in the restaurant is too great given the city’s parking regulations, McNeal said. The city denied'the museum a parking enforcement moratorium earlier this month. Thursday, museum officials failed to convince the Zoning Board of Adjustments to lower the parking requirement for the restaurant. Zoning board members said they needed to uphold city parking codes. “It is not our purpose to guarantee the financial viability of anybody,” said David Hochanadel, board president. The museum is in compliance because of parking leased from neighboring property owners, but they could terminate the leases at any time. The parking lease issue is a citywide problem that needs to be addressed, Mayor Adam Cork said Friday. “ This kind of thing can happen everywhere,” Cork said. “It’s a weak ordinance. It has a lot of loopholes in it." The current ordinance allows—without a lot of qualifiers — for parking lease contracts, Cork said. He said he hopes staff can make the ordinance more clear. T hursday night, museum officials said although they have enough parking spaces, the offsite spaces are not marked. “Those are the kinds of things that I want to discuss,” Cork said.
