At 2:40 pm on Nov. 14, Irving Firefighters were dispatched to a structure fire at 3515 Coker St in North Irving near MacArthur High School.
The first units were on scene at 2:44 pm, reported heavy smoke, and shortly thereafter upgraded to a second alarm. The Fire was called under control at 3:04 pm.
No reported injuries to civilians or personnel. Emergency management coordinated with the Red Cross to provide for nine apartments' residents that were affected.
It is worth noting that the Firefighters fast actions stopped to fire from advancing in the attic. Those actions saved large portions of the building.
