A fire erupted at a triplex early Tuesday morning, causing heavy damage to the one-story housing unit in north Killeen.
"When we arrived, they had fire coming through the roof in the center apartment," said Kenneth Hawthorne, Killeen Fire Department's interim chief.
After hearing people may be trapped inside, KFD dispatched about 20 firefighters and five firetrucks to the structure near the intersection of West Avenue J and Stringer Street, said Hawthorne, who also responded to the blaze.
After arriving, however, officials discovered that all three occupants of the triplex did escape unharmed. No injuries were reported.
KFD got the call at 2:42 a.m.. and the city fire marshal's office is investigating to see what caused the fire.
The fire "did get in the attic," Hawthorne said, adding the center apartment was heavily damaged by fire, while the two adjacent apartments were mostly damaged by smoke.
The Red Cross is assisting the three people who lived in the triplex.
