Monday afternoon (October 3rd), firefighters with the Lubbock Fire Department battled a blaze at the Boulders at Lakeridge apartments, located at 4421 82nd Street.

KAMC News reported that the fire was called in at 2:56 p.m. As of this story's publication, Lubbock Fire Rescue hasn't confirmed the cause of the fire. However, residents stated that an air conditioning unit was being updated when crews hit an electrical line. That line then seems to have carried the fire to toward the roof of the building and for a time the fire was contained until it spread to the east side of the building following the electrical lines of the building.

Twelve fire and rescue crews were soon at the scene to help contain the fire as it started to spread to the west side of the building through the roof. The force of the water from the vehicles knocked off some roof shingles, which allowed flames to soar even higher. Fire crews were able to directly hit those flames, too.

An ambulance at the scene was on standby with a medical stretcher. There's currently no word as to if there were any injuries from the fire.
