Authorities in Denton County battled a large fire at a Lewisville apartment complex Tuesday morning that damaged 16 units.

The fire was reported after 10 a.m. at the Somerset Apartments on the 200 block of East Corporate Drive, emergency officials said.

NBC 5 viewers phoned into the newsroom to report heavy smoke was visible for miles around the scene. Video from Texas Sky Ranger showed water cannons pumping water into the two-story building.

East Corporate Drive was closed while firefighters battled the fire, but that roadway has since been reopened.

There were no reports of injuries.
