20 people were displaced after a 3-alarm fire broke out at an apartment building in Northeast Dallas.

According to reports from the Dallas Fire-Rescue, the fire broke out at the LaVita apartment complex on Lovers Lane, just after 3 p.m.


The fire started on the second floor before flames spread to the attic.

Seven units in the connected building saw combinations of fire, smoke and, water damage. No one was injured in this incident.

Managers of the apartment complex and the Red Cross are scrambling to find places for the displaced people to stay.

Jason Evans, with Dallas Fire-Rescue, said, "You hate to see people lose anything in a fire any time of year, but when the conditions are what they are, facing the temperatures that we’re facing, it makes it all the harder."

Evans mentioned that the fire was controlled pretty quickly, but it wasn’t declared extinguished until two hours later.

More than 70 firefighters responded to put out the fire.
