Kitchen fire sparks 2 alarm apartment blaze in northwest Dallas

Dallas Fire-Rescue started off 2019 with an apartment fire this morning in the 9800 block of Harwell Drive.

Engine 43 and Battalion 7 were the first to arrive on scene just before 10:30am with quite a bit of smoke coming from the attic of a two story apartment building. Battalion 9 arrived on scene shortly thereafter and reported fire had already breached the roof.

Box 4 Firebuffs reported the fire started in the kitchen of an apartment unit and spread into the attic and roof of the building.

We have not heard any reports of injuries.

The fire escalated to a 2 alarm response. Here is a photo from the scene shared by Box 4 Firebuffs, the rehab team for DFR.
