    A 4-alarm fire at a Dallas apartment complex destroyed eight units in one building and left residents out in the cold early Thursday.

    Fire broke out shortly after 4 a.m. at the Park Towne Villas Apartments on Holly Hill Drive near Greenville Avenue and Park Lane.
    Firefighters put out the flames before 5 a.m., but remained at the scene for several hours keeping hot spots under control.
    Smoke billowing from the roof could be seen from U.S. 75.
    No one was injured, according to Lt. Joel Lavender, of Dallas Fire Rescue. Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fire.
    The American Red Cross is helping displaced residents find somewhere else to live.
