A late night Lubbock fire has displaced multiple people and caused some fatalities. Lubbock Fire and Rescue were dispatched at 11:40 p.m. to the 5600 block of Avenue A on Wednesday, February 15.
KAMC news reported that the fire was reportedly called in as coming from a home in the area, along with a shed, but at the scene Lubbock Fire and Rescue discovered a slightly different scenario. When emergency crews arrived at the scene they found flames were coming from a home located behind a main home and nearby gazebo, along with some downed power lines.
Through an investigation it was revealed that the fire had moved from it's main source to a neighboring home. Due to the severity of the blaze multiple fire crews had to be dispatched to help put out the flames.
