SAN ANGELO – The San Angelo Fire Marshal’s office is investigating after a building fire burned parts of an apartment complex in College Hills Thursday morning and displaced nearly a dozen residents a week before Thanksgiving.
On Thursday, November 19, 2021, around 4 a.m., five fire engines and an emergency service arrived at the Plaza Square Apartments, 4001 Sul Ross St., and found a residential building in flames.
“Four residential units in one building were damaged or destroyed,” said Ross Coleman, San Angelo Fire Prevention Administrator and Fire Code Official, in a message to the Standard-Times.
“As a result, the entire building was closed, affecting all eight units within the building. We learned from housing management that eight people were evicted and relocated,” said Coleman.
The Celebration Church opened its doors Thursday and allowed members of the local Red Cross to use the church’s facilities to help victims and provide relief services, Coleman said.
“No injuries have been reported and the case is still being investigated by the San Angelo Fire Marshal’s office,” said Coleman.
