LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Food left on the stove led to a fire which destroyed a Lubbock apartment unit Sunday afternoon in the Peartree apartment complex at 1809 14th Street.
The Lubbock Fire Department says residents left the apartment and when they returned after 3 p.m. they discovered the apartment was on fire. Nearby residents were evacuated as a precaution but they have since been allowed to go back home.
One unit was completely destroyed by a combination of fire, smoke, and water damage. Damage is estimated to cost $40,000. No one was injured.
