PASADENA, Texas – Firefighters with the Pasadena Fire Department and Houston Fire Department worked to put out a blaze at an apartment complex located in Pasadena, officials said Tuesday.

Officials said the two-alarm fire broke out at an apartment complex located at 4201 Fairmont. According to officials, a building began to collapse as firefighters worked to put out the flames.

Firefighters were still working to put out hot spots around 5 a.m. Residents who live at the apartment were seen standing outside, many of them saying they lost everything but are thankful they got out in time.

“I didn’t hear anything. I just smelled smoke. The atmosphere was full of smoke and that’s what woke me up,” one man told KPRC 2′s Brittany Jeffers.

So far, officials said no injuries have been reported. Red Cross is helping residents that were impacted by the fire.
