LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock Fire Department and EMS have been called out to respond to an apartment fire at the 2800 block of Juniper Avenue.

The call originally came in at around 4 p.m. with reports of a structure fire. It is not clear if there were any people in the building; there were some windows that were boarded up.

The Lubbock Fire Marshal has determined the owner of the building said he was using a special torch to cut railings around the complex. A spark flew off which ignited a small fire he tried to put out, but it did seem to get out of hand. 

NewsChannel 11 will update this story as more information becomes available.
