A Fire Destroys Apartment Complex near 635 and Abrams Road

At around 11:30PM on October 20th 2017 an apartment block off of 12300 Abrams Road set off in flames. The apartment complex is off of the Solarium Apartment complex, between the North Creek Condominiums directly behind Pinyon Tree lane.

Dallas firefighters took to their extension ladders armed with water cannons in an attempt to cull the flames back to manageable levels. Their battle has lasted over two hours with the flames, and many firefighters were seen surrounded in plumes of smoke and water steam.

The three-story complex initially caught on fire for reasons unknown, and despite rapid efforts from Dallas City Fire and Rescue teams, steadily grew into a blazing inferno and caused the teams to upgrade the fire
to a three, and then a four-alarm fire just one and a half hours after its start.

Nearby neighbors swarmed nearby parking lots to catch a glimpse of the blazing building. Many shared the sentiment of concern over the safety of their own residences, and the worry of smoke inhalation. Photos by Kathy Tran
