Several residents of a north side apartment complex had to be rescued by firefighters during a two alarm fire overnight, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
When firefighters arrived at the Willow Run Apartments, which is at Blanco and Jackson-Keller, near Nimitz Middle School, they found flames and smoke coming out of ten apartments.
A second alarm was called, and at one point thirty fire units were on the scene.
Firefighters had to enter several burning apartments and take occupants to safety. Thanks to the heroic efforts of the firefighters, nobody was hurt.
All ten units that were fully involved when firefighters arrived were determined to be too badly damaged for occupancy, and the Red Cross was called in to find the people who lived there a place to spend the night.
Arson investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fire, but it is not believed to be a case of arson.
