Fire Destroys West Lubbock Apartment

Firefighters received the call around 2:30pm, to the Hideaway Apartments off of West 4th St. Upon arrival, they saw flames and smoke, coming from the lower level apartments in Building B. The building is unoccupied, so no one was injured or displaced in the fire. The fire however, in the heat of the day required precautions including the E.M.S. rehab van to monitor the firefighters conditions.

While no firefighters suffered problems, a few took on oxygen as a precaution. "Anytime you have all the gear on you definitely have a toll it takes on your body in the heat of the fire too," said Mark Ethridge, Lubbock Fire Department.

Witnesses told officials they saw smoke and heard children in the area, but fire officials say they haven't found the children or the cause at this time.

The fire spread into the attic of the lower level apartments but not to the second floor.
