20+ Apartment Units Damaged
MORE THAN 70 DALLAS, TEXAS, firefighters are still mopping up following a 4-alarm fire in an apartment complex Monday morning.
The call was dispatched shortly before 5 am Central and the first-in units found fire showing through the roof of a 3-story apartment building.
After about an hour on the scene, a light rain moved into the area and aided in cooling down the hot spot, but also created a visibility problem that is well illustrated in this good video report from WDFW-TV:
The fire was knocked down by 7:45 am. Investigators haven't yet been able to begin looking for the cause, but some residents said that it appeared to have started in a 2nd-floor unit.
The only injury reported so far was a teenage girl who has athsma suffered from smoke inhalation and was transported.
The Dallas Morning News has the early REPORT.
