The Lake Travis Fire Department and Rescue crews were called out to the fire in the 3700 block of Farm to Market 620 at 6:22 a.m. When firefighters arrived on the scene behind Alan’s Vehicle Inspection, they saw fire coming from the building.

Fire crews said they were able to contain the fire to one building, which damaged approximately 15 units.

Heat from the fire deterred the crew’s search for inhabitants in the units; it is believe people sometimes use the facility as temporary housing. While firefighting two crew-members received minor injuries. They don’t believe there was anyone in the units during the fire and have reported zero fatalities at this time.

While firefighters were busy putting out the fire, the fire chief said there were several car crashes on the road because drivers were turning to look and see what was going on.

“The firefighters today, like any day, they take calculated risks and by doing that they assess the immediate danger to human life and if there is the possibility of danger to human life they will go up and beyond what most people will,” said Lake Travis Fire and Rescue Chief, Robert Abbott.

Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire, which has now been extinguished.
