Fire Damages Several Apartments

An apartment fire in Longview injures two people and leaves a dozen residents without a home, Sunday.  Fire crews were called out to Hidden Hills Apartments, located in the 600 Block of Gilmer Road just before 4:00 p.m., Sunday.  When firefighters arrived, flames were shooting out of the top of one of the apartments.  Crews worked quickly to put out the fire, but not before it destroyed one apartment and damaged seven others.  

In the rush to get residents out, authorities say one resident and a firefighter suffered minor burns.  They were treated at the scene.  The cause of the fire is still unknown.
