Houston fire forces more than 100 from apartments

HOUSTON - by KHOU 11 News and


More than a hundred residents were forced out of their beds early Monday when a two-alarm fire broke out.

The Houston Fire Department says the blaze was reported shortly after 5 a.m. at the Woodlake Oaks Apartments on Ella Lee Lane near S. Gessner Road.

Within an hour part of the building had collapsed, but there were no reports of injuries, HFD said.

Residents of nearby structures, who were concerned the fire would jump, were among those who went outside after hearing the fire trucks.


We were asleep and in bed, and our window faces where the fire is, said resident Zara Cecil. I didnt notice the flames, I just saw the lights from the firetrucks, so we looked out the window and saw smoke.


Zara's husband, Chris, said his neighbors didn't appear to be too frantic, but he made the decision to evacuate anyway.

About 10 minutes later the first flames starting appearing out of the top, said Chris. The first concern I had was that Ive got my whole family here, and I know fire spread can spread quick. My first concern was okay, we have to get up, and we have to get out of here.

Views from Air 11 showed the fire was contained after about 90 minutes.


The apartment building was heavily damaged.
