Large fire destroyed 4 apartment buildings under construction in Old East Dallas
Four apartment buildings that were under construction were completely destroyed in a huge fire Saturday night.
When crews responded at the scene, they saw a fire coming from the third floor of one of the buildings located in the 4400 block of Scurry Street, near North Peak Street and Ross Avenue. Fire crews received 911 emergency call around 10:30 p.m.
The buildings were still under construction and no injuries were reported.
Officials said the fire was in such an advanced stage that a second alarm was requested before firefighters arrived and a third alarm was called about 15 minutes later.
Between 60 and 65 firefighters surrounded the blaze and brought it under control shortly after midnight, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue.
The cause of the fire, which destroyed four buildings consisting of 14 apartment units, has not been determined.
