Multiple departments knock down fire at apartment complex in North Richland Hills

Just before 1:30pm this afternoon, North Richland Hills and automatic aid departments responded to an apartment fire in the 5500 block of Lewis Court.

Light to moderate smoke was showing from the roof upon FD arrival. Watauga FD, Richland Hills FD, and Haltom City FD all responded to assist North Richland Hills. Bedford FD sent their Light & Air truck as well.

Fire was confirmed in the walls and attic of the two-story apartment building, making it difficult for the firefighters to locate and knock down. The fire was running in the walls and up into the roof.

The fire was officially declared out at around 2:45pm.
