An apartment fire in Irving injured one person and made four families homeless on Sunday evening.

The blaze broke out around 5:30 p.m. at the Broadmoor Villas Apartments in the 5000-block of Courtside Drive. 

Firefighters had to pull one woman to safety. She was given oxygen at the scene but was not transported to the hospital.

One resident told NBC 5 that she lost her beloved pet of 11 years.

The American Red Cross is assisting the four families who were left homeless by the fire.
