A fire at the Round Rock residential complex on Tuesday morning forced 21 residents from 21 apartments to leave their homes. No injuries were reported.
The Round Rock Fire Department responded to a fire at 8:01 a.m. at the Terrastone Travesia apartments at 3701 Quick Hill Road. The fire was extinguished by 8:57 am, officials said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, but according to preliminary data, the fire started in the attic of one of the apartments, the city authorities said. House 13, where the fire broke out, was also damaged by water. IDPs receive help from the Red Cross.
“Our response today would not have been possible without the help of our partner agencies,” Fire Chief Shane Glaser said in a press release. “That’s what makes our community special, people helping people.”
A total of 12 fire brigades arrived at the scene. The fire department received assistance from the Pflugerville and Austin fire departments, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, and Williamson County Constable Station 4. Williamson County Ambulance Service was on standby, officials said.
