At least one person was hurt in a large fire at an apartment complex.
Dozens of firefighters battled the fire at the Hunter's Court apartment complex on Spring Valley Road in far north Dallas after 5 a.m. Monday.
It was a fast-moving blaze that started on the second floor, climbed into the attic and made its way into an adjacent floor space. Several walls of the burning building collapsed.
Thick smoke and tall flames forced residents to scramble to safety. But, officials said everyone was able to escape.
The structure was so damaged by the flames, fire officials said the building needed to be demolished. By Monday afternoon, the building had been knocked down.
One teenage girl was taken to the hospital and treated for smoke inhalation.
A firefighter was also treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
At least 20 units were affected and 40 people were displaced. The American Red Cross is expected to help them.
Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.
