The Dallas apartment fire had been burning for more than an hour. The search for trapped victims had been completed. It was time to clear the place, fight the blaze from the outside rather than the inside, and turn on the ladder pipes – huge, crane-like hoses capable of spewing tons of water onto the top of the building.
Firefighters responded to a five-alarm blaze at an apartment complex in Dallas early Thursday morning. The flames burned 24 units at the Courtney Place Apartments.
Five people were overcome by fumes and hospitalized Wednesday morning when a donated glass container broke at the Salvation Army warehouse and thrift store in Dallas.
