LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Two firefighters suffered minor injuries in an apartment fire last night in Longview.

Around nine o'clock last night Longview fire crews were called to a fire at the abandoned Country Place apartments on Garfield drive and High street.

Firefighters say an investigation is underway and that arson is a possibility. One firefighter suffered minor injuries when he fell through a floor, another from minor exhaustion.

Officials say the building was just recently purchased and scheduled for demolition for future expansion of the Ware school campus.
