    A large fire tore through an apartment building in Irving, destroying the homes of dozens of people Friday morning.

    The fire was reported in the 4500 block of West Pioneer Drive shortly after 9:30 a.m.

    Video captured from Texas Sky Ranger showed major damage to a large portion of the apartment building. Fire crews used several water cannons as flames soared from the roof of the building.
