Lubbock fire crews responded to reports of a fire at a vacant apartment complex at 66th Street and Avenue R. The first calls came in at 4:30 Monday morning.

KCBD towercam showed two fire trucks arriving on the scene before 4:45 am and smoke coming from the area. When crews arrived, they found fire on the first and second story windows of the quadraplex.

Our KCBD crew on the scene says it appears the fire was in the D complex of the two-story building in the 6100 block. By 5:15 am, the flames had been extinguished and smoke was dying down. The building appeared significantly burnt.

Lubbock Fire Marshal's Office was called to investigate the cause of the fire and it is still under investigation. Anyone with any information regarding this incident can contact the Fire Marshal's Office at 806-775-2646.
