3-Alarm Fire Destroys North Texas Apartments

KENS San Antonio

IRVING -- Investigators are working to find the cause of a fire that destroyed multiple units at an apartment complex located in the 3800 block of North O'Connor Road in Irving.

The fire, which destroyed the Irving apartments, began around 4 a.m. and continued to burn until firefighters were able to get the fire under control at about 6:50 a.m. At least 15 apartments were damaged in the fire.

The battle to extinguish the fire began with a rough start when firefighters discovered the complex's water source had little to no pressure. While residents were evacuated, firefighters dragged hoses across the street to find a source of water to battle the blaze.

Several residents also said their smoke alarms never went off. One resident, who said he has lived at the complex for over 10 years, claimed there have been at least three fires since he has lived there.

There were no reports of injuries.
