Residents of an Arlington apartment complex woke up to fire ripping through part of their neighborhood early Monday morning.

Fire investigators said they got a call just before 4:30 a.m. that the Cimarron Crossing Apartments near Pioneer Parkway (Spur 303) and state Highway 360 were on fire.

When firefighters arrived, they said they saw heavy fire through the roof of the two story brick structure.  They quickly upgraded the fire to a 2-alarm status—giving crews more manpower and equipment to fight the blaze.

Fire crews said the fire was focused on the back of the building near a courtyard area, which made it difficult for them to get to it.

All in all, about four units were destroyed.  Several others had smoke and water damage.

No one was injured during the fire.  The American Red Cross has been called to assist those who lost their homes.
