DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Approximately 40 residents are displaced after a 2-alarm fire at the Preston Valley Apartments in north Dallas broke out around 7 p.m. Sunday.

The two-story apartments are located at 5631 Spring Valley Rd. Firefighters took about an hour to put the blaze out.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said the fire was coming through the complex’s roof at one point.

It’s unclear how many of the 16 units fell prey to the flames, but all 40 residents were displaced because electricity to the entire complex had to be shut off.

The American Red Cross has been notified of the displaced persons.
