When firefighters arrived smoke was coming from the bottom area of the building. We're told the fire is in the basement, but the extent of the fire is unknown.
Multiple engines as well as a ladder truck responded to the call. The Lubbock County Sheriff's Department mobile operation's unit was also on the scene. The Omni is one of the tallest buildings in Lubbock and has been empty for several years.
