Fire breaks out at Huntsville apartment complex | News
Huntsville fire crews battled a blaze at an apartment complex overnight.
Up to nine fire and rescue units responded to the apartment fire on Academy Drive, just minutes before another fire broke out at a house on Memorial Parkway Access Road a few miles away. They responded to the call just after 10 p.m. Sunday.
A neighbor said a family lives in the unit that caught fire. She said the family asked her to help put out the fire.
"They came to me to ask for a fire extinguisher, and I went out to help," said Nancy Freeman." It was already in flames so it was kind of scary."
Investigators said the fire was caused by a flammable object being too close to a heat source.
