Fire Destroys Treyway Terrace Apartment

CORPUS CHRISTI - A fire rips through a southside apartment, leaving behind major damage.

Neighbors at Treyway Terrace frantically called firefighters this morning, saying they could smell thick smoke coming from the apartment next door.

Fire crews arrived on the scene in time to keep the fire from spreading, but not in time to save the apartment.

"That apartment is not livable," said firefighter Doug Matthijetz. "There's quite a bit of damage to the apartment."

Thankfully, no one was inside the apartment during the fire. Neighbors said the woman who lives there is out of town for the week.

"A boyfriend of the occupant was supposed to be watching the apartment," said Matthijetz. "But, I don't know if he was staying here, came by or not, but there was nobody here at the time."

Firefighters are still investigating the cause of the fire.
