HOUSTON - A Houston Firefighter was injured while battling a large apartment fire in northwest Houston.

The fire was reported around 1:30 p.m. at Timbers of Inwood Forest on West Gulf Bank Road near Antoine Drive.

Officials said the firefighter was injured after falling through the roof, but treated and released on the scene. 
No other injuries have been reported, however, they said officials have not made contact with a resident of one apartment and have not been able to go inside that apartment because the roof of that apartment has collapsed.

SKY 2 aerials show the damage to the building's rooftop. Fire official said about 12 units were damaged in the fire. 

The cause of the fire is unknown.
