Hundreds Of Portable Toilets Go Up In Flames In Texas

SAN ANTONIO (January 1, 2014) Investigators are looking into whether fireworks could have sparked a New Year’s Eve blaze that destroyed about 350 portable toilets at a business outside of San Antonio.

Bexar County spokeswoman Monica Ramos said the fire started at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at United Site Services, east of the city center.

Ramos said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Other officials, however, say fireworks may have started a grass fire that spread to the business and then to the portable toilets.

United's website says that, with 52 locations nationwide, it is the largest provider of portable toilets and restroom trailers in the country.
