A wildfire threatened an apartment complex in Waxahachie on Thursday afternoon.

The flames came right up to the fence surrounding the Bent Tree apartments along Interstate 35E.

Firefighters also worked to keep Getzendaner Memorial Park -- on the other side of Waxahachie Creek -- safe.

Dry vegetation, low humidity and winds gusting to 17 mph added to the challenges for firefighters.

There were no reports of structures damaged or injuries.
