Firefighter injured during 3-alarm apartment fire in Montrose

A massive 3-alarm fire broke out just before 1 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex on Michigan near Yupon. “When the first unit got here, there was so much fire they couldn’t tell. Everything was on fire,” said Houston Fire Department Deputy Chief Douglas Harrison. During the fire, five apartment units were damaged along with several cars along the street. Authorities say one of the units is a total loss and will have to be knocked down completely. When one of the buildings partially collapsed, a firefighter was hit in the back by boards. He was taken to the hospital but has since been released. The cause of the fire is unknown and under investigation. Trucks that responded to the initial box were E01, E06. E016, E07, L016 (Engine 01 is one the mayor’s plan will remove from service.)
