Two People Hurt in Windcrest Apartment Fire

Two residents of a Windcrest apartment complex were treated for injuries they suffered in a fire that destroyed parts of the complex early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Windcrest Fire Department crews arrived at the Villas at Windcrest Apartments in the 8000 block of Willmon Way about 1AM, and found flames shooting out of the roof and off the balconies. A total of eight apartments were fully engulfed in flames.

They quickly called for backup, and units from Alamo Heights, Randolph AFB, Ft. Sam Houston, Converse, Live Oak, Universal City and Kirby responded.

The roof and the floor of the building on fire collapsed, causing firefighters to order firemen out of the building.

No cause or damage estimate yet. The entire apartment complex had to be evacuated, and the Red Cross and the landord are working to find a place for the residents to stay.

The two people who were hurt were treated at the scene by EMS.
