SAN ANGELO – The San Angelo Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating after a structural fire Thursday morning burned parts of a College Hills apartment complex, displacing nearly a dozen residents a week before Thanksgiving.
At around 4 a.m. on Thursday, November 19, 2021, five fire trucks and an emergency services unit arrived at Plaza Square Apartments, 4001 Sul Ross Street, to find a building on fire.
“Four apartments in a building were damaged or destroyed,” Ross Coleman, San Angelo fire prevention administrator and fire code officer, said in a message to The Standard-Times.
“As a result, the entire building has been closed, affecting the eight units located in the structure. We understand from the management of the apartments that eight people have been moved and relocated,” Coleman said.
Celebration Church opened Thursday, allowing members of the local Red Cross to use church premises to help victims and provide relief services, according to Coleman.
“No injuries have been reported and the matter is still under investigation by the San Angelo Fire Marshal’s Office,” said Coleman.
