SULPHUR SPRINGS, TX (KLTV) -

A Sulphur Springs apartment complex is left heavily damaged and numerous persons are left without a home after a Sunday afternoon fire.

Around 3pm Sunday, the call came in that heavy smoke and flames were coming from the attic of the Quail Ridge Apartments, located in the 300 block of Helm Lane in Sulphur Springs.

Numerous county and city fire crews responded to the scene. Officials are saying that 17 apartments were heavily damaged and numerous surrounding apartments received smoke and water damage.

The local chapter of the American Red Cross has set up a shelter for people who have been displaced by this fire at the Sulphur Springs Church of the Nazarene. They are expecting around 35 to 40 people. The Red Cross will start assessing those peoples' needs Monday morning.

At this time the fire has been contained and they are working to make sure all hot spots are out.

Two firefighters were injured during this fire. One suffered a knee injury and was treated on the scene, the second was hit in the face by a nozzle and was transported to Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. Several residents in the area were also treated on the scene for smoke inhalation.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
