DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A two-alarm fire Wednesday afternoon made a four-unit condo in the 11400 block of Woodmeadow Parkway uninhabitable, Dallas Fire Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.

Emergency crews were called to the fire at 1:40 p.m. When fire fighters arrived, they saw fire pouring out of the first floor of the condo. Evans said the second alarm came after the fire got into the walls and spread past the second floor and out of the roof.

Fire crews had the blaze under control about 30 minutes, he said.

While only two of the units suffered “significant fire damage,” Evans said the combination of smoke and water made the entire complex uninhabitable.

There were no injuries and the American Red Cross is assisting those who were displaced in the fire. One firefighter hurt his back, but was taken to the hospital and is going to be OK. Evans did not know how many residents lost their home.

Evans said the fire began in a first-floor bedroom –– investigators are looking into how it started.
