Some evacuations during Saddle Brook apartment fire


WACO, Texas- Fire damaged at least one unit at the Saddle Brook Apartments Wednesday morning, with a few others having to be evacuated.

Fire units were dispatched to the complex on Chapel Road at 5:03 a.m.

When firefighters arrived the occupant of the apartment met the responders and directed them to her apartment. Firefighters were able to clear the surrounding occupants from the building.

As the firefighters went into the bed room to extinguish the fire they found it was cluttered and could not easily maneuver through the apartment. They extinguished the hot spots in the piles of debris in the apartment.

Other residents were awakened about five to the sound of fire trucks and the smell of smoke.

There was no word of injuries.

Firefighters were on the scene for about 3 hours. The assessed damage is estimated to be about $50,000.
