Lubbock fire fighters have largely extinguished a blaze that began Monday afternoon at a central Lubbock apartment complex.
The fire broke out around 3:30 this afternoon at the Red Oaks apartment buildings at 5308 38th Street. The fire originally began as a one-alarm fire, then progressed to a two-alarm, and was later declared as a three-alarm fire due to the heat.
