Apartment Complex Fire Burns in Houston

HOUSTON - A large apartment complex under construction in Houston is the scene of a 5-alarm fire this afternoon.

Fire Captain Ruy Lozano told KPRC one construction worker had to be rescued from the third floor of the structure. No word on that worker's condition.

There are no reported injuries, according to HFD.

Lozano said firefighters are working to contain the blaze, and a collapse is imminent because the fire suppression systems were not yet in place for the under-construction building.
