    A three-alarm apartment fire on Skillman St. in Dallas shut down multiple lanes of traffic on Friday morning.

    Dallas-Fire Rescue battled a three-alarm structure fire at the Wind Tree Condominiums at 8110 Skillman Street at 6:54 a.m. Friday.

    Jason Evans with Dallas-Fire Rescue said when the first units arrived, fire was coming from the second and third floors of the building. They were able to extinguish the fire by attacking it from all directions with the aid of the second and third alarm response units.

    Twelve units in the building were rendered uninhabitable, including two vacant units. Evans said an undetermined number of people have been displaced, but that they are working with the Red Cross and Dallas Office of Emergency Management to assist the displaced people.

    Evans said there were no reported injuries to any residents or firefighters. At least two cats were rescued from the building.

    Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
