Apartment Fire

LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - Longview Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating a fire at an apartment complex this morning.

According to Longview Fire Marshal Kevin Mays, around 6:30 a.m., firefighters were called to the scene of a fire at The Fairways Apartments in the 3600 block of McCann Road.

Tenants of the apartments were notified of the fire by smoke detectors inside the apartment, according to Mays.

Tracey Delorey lives in one of the apartment damaged in the fire. She was asleep when the fire started.

“The smoke detector woke me up. Looked out the window, saw the fire department was already here, and when I came out of the bedroom I could see flames coming from the bathroom. Came outside and then ran back in to get my things and the firemen made me leave, obviously,” Delorey said.

Investigators believe the fire started inside the wall between two apartment units. No one was injured.

The fire has been extinguished and Hawkins Parkway has been reopened.
