LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Fire Rescue crews were called to the scene of a structure fire at 3210 Oak Ridge Ave. on Thursday evening.

The fire started just after 5 p.m. at the El Mirador Apartments at Elm Park, just off of Milwaukee Ave.

It appears the fire started in the attic over the front office and is contained to the roof.

No injuries were reported, but the leasing office will need to be rebuilt.

Fire officials describe this as a "wind-driven fire" that took some extra time to contain due to high winds.
