DALLAS - A Dallas man left homeless after an apartment fire Monday tonight is backtracking on his story about his calls to Dallas 911.

Bryan Borgman went public with claims that he called 911 for 30 minutes, trying to report the fire engulfing a neighbor's apartment. He claimed he got nothing but unanswered rings.

Thursday we caught up with Borgman, who is changing his story.

His phone log indicates his first call was actually placed at 8:21 a.m., not 7:51 a.m., as he first claimed.

When News 8 asked Borgman about the discrepancy, he responded, "I may have been a few minutes off, dude."

Borgman's call log did indicate he placed three calls to 911 in four minutes.

He stuck to his story that he got no response. Other neighbors told us they also tried to report the fire, and got no response.

Dallas police operate the 911 system. Dallas Police Chief David Brown told News 8 that all 911 calls are answered by an operator in two seconds, on average.
