DALLAS - Twelve units were damaged in a three-alarm blaze in which 80 firefighters worked to extinguish Friday morning at the Windtree Condos in Dallas.

Firefighters were alerted to the blaze just before 7 a.m. Once on the scene, firefighters closed off traffic in the area for about an hour while they worked at the scene in the 8100 block of Skillman St.

A thick plume of smoke billowed over the complex and flames shot through the roof as firefighters worked to extinguish the fire from the ground and above on a ladder.

The fire grew to three alarms after it traveled into the attic of the three-story complex. Firefighters were able to get control of the blaze just before 8 a.m.

In a statement released later in the morning, Dallas Fire-Rescue said there were no injuries and two cats were rescued.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Out of the 12 units deemed uninhabitable, 10 were occupied. The American Red Cross and Dallas Office of Emergency Management are working to help the displaced residents.
