Five-alarm fire displaces Texas families

DALLAS -- More than 100 firefighters responded to a Texas fire that destroyed 24 apartment units.

Several Dallas families are homeless Thursday night after the five-alarm fire swallowed their complex.

Many families woke up to smoke and flames in their homes.

Multiple fire units responded to the scene. No one was injured.

"We had a lot of people inside. We had a lot of people we were concerned what their mobility level was," said Lieutenant Joel Lavender, Dallas Fire-Rescue.

Some of the units had been without water for the last few days and  even though they're without a home, they're thankful everyone made it out alive.
