Saturday fire destroys a Lubbock apartment building

By James Clark email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Fire completely destroyed one portion of the Green Gables Apartments in the 4400 block of 20th street.  At 10:28 PM, Firefighters with Engine 7 were returning to their station from another assignment when they saw smoke and called in the fire to their dispatcher.

A second alarm was called just after 10:30.  Firefighters took a defensive stand with the idea of keeping the fire from spreading to nearby buildings.

The fire was contained to one building.

As of September 3rd, the date of a previous fire at Green Gables, the complex was not occupied, and neighbors at that time said vandals had been targeting the area.

Nearly an hour after the fire started, firefighters had it mostly doused with only hot spots left.  The Fire Marshal's office was called out to investigate. There are no reports of injuries.
