channels 4, 5 and 12 had live coverage of it, from around 8pm till
newstime, channel 5 let letterman play, and then cut back in after the
mono-log to say that while it -was- under control, it had started to heat
back up again.

Between the local news outlets, and www.ollu.edu, there should be plenty
of into this morning, on what happened.

This was the main building, a San Antonio landmark/icon and the jewel of the West Side of town, building was completed in 1895, 113 years ago, with money raised from locals, by locals.

The computer lab at Our Lady of the Lake was in that building, but one of the reports was that it was rescued last night, before any fire could damage it.  Hopefully all the records and school info was saved as well.
