GRAPEVINE — Firefighters in Grapevine were battling a five-alarm fire Saturday night at an apartment complex next door to the Grapevine Mills shopping mall.
Large flames shot up from The Enclave at Grapevine just before 9 o'clock, which, according to preliminary information, is a three-story apartment building under construction. Some people reported seeing fire on the horizon from as far as 20 miles away.
One resident told News 8 the burning building was about six months away from opening.
As the fire continued to burn, the flames reportedly spread to adjacent buildings.
Grapevine requested assistance from fire departments in neighboring cities including Coppell, Flower Mound, Keller, Southlake, Bedford, Hurst, Euless, Colleyville, DFW Airport and North Richland Hills.
The flames had subsided by 10:20 p.m., but firefighters and onlookers were dealing with a lot of smoke.
There were no initial reports of injuries.
