Apartment Fire Leaves 80 Families Looking For Another Home


Nearly 80 families need a new place to live after a fire gutted their apartment complex on Leora Lane in Lewisville, just north of 121.

The fire happened around 6:00 a.m. Sunday at the Rose Hill Apartments, a three-story apartment building, which housed 86 units and the complex's leasing office, according to the Lewisville Fire Department.

The exact cause has yet to be determined, but investigators believed lightning was the likely cause of the fire, due to witness reports.

Fire crews got everyone out safely.

Fire departments from The Colony, Coppell, Highland Village, Flower Mound and the Lake Cities assisted the Lewisville Fire Department in knocking down the fire.
