It took approximately 100 first responders to extinguish a fire that broke through the roofline and caused "significant damage" to a condominium complex in Lake Highlands just before 1 a.m. Friday, Dallas fire officials say.
Firefighters arrived at Richland Trace Condominiums in the 9800 block of Walnut Street in North Lake Highlands at 12:54 a.m. Friday and saw smoke and flames already coming through the roof, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue.
Dallas Fire-Rescue said about 100 firefighters were dispatched to fight the blaze, which officials said was caused by a resident "using an open electric oven for heat."
The latest news from around North Texas.
The resident noticed an orange glow coming from the kitchen after midnight and called 911, Dallas Fire-Rescue said.
The resident sustained burns that were not life-threatening, was treated at a local hospital and released, officials said. Three residents sought assistance after the fire, though all 16 condos in the building lost power briefly.
Firefighters extinguished the fire by 2:30 a.m., officials said.
The same complex sustained damage from a fire in February 2017. No injuries were reported in that blaze.
