Longview apartment fire might be arson

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - An early morning fire guts a Longview apartment building and is now being investigated as an arson.

The fire started around 5 a.m. Friday at the Colonial Apartments on the 2000 block of Judson Road.

One tenant got the other three tenants out of the structure, as flames were shooting through the roof.

Fire crews were able to get it under control, but not before it destroyed half the building.

Investigators say combustible materials were found in the building.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.
