FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Eight residents were displaced Sunday morning after a two-alarm fire broke out at a far East Fort Worth apartment complex, destroying two units and damaging three.

Fire officials said the roof and  two units at the Vanderbilt Apartments in the 8600 block of Vanderbilt were completely ruined while another unit suffered water and smoke damage. Two more apartments were damaged by smoke.

All occupants were evacuated from the two-story apartment building after the fire broke out. Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Lt. Ricardo Neaves said the fire spread from two apartments in the rear of the complex through an attic vent.

Fire fighters had the blaze under control about ten minutes after authorities were dispatched, at about 8:59 a.m.

No residents or fire fighters were injured in the blaze, although a dog had to be rescued and resuscitated. The animal’s status wasn’t immediately available, Neaves said.
