A two-alarm fire on Sunday night destroyed five units and damaged two others at a West Austin condominium complex, displacing 15 residents from their homes.
911 received three calls from the complex around 7:30 p.m. AFD officials said the fire started in the second floor breezeway of the complex, which is located in the 1400 block of Norwalk Drive near Exposition and Enfield. Buildings in the complex are three stories, with the upper units having two stories.
Residents in units that were not damaged were allowed to return to their units once firefighters knocked the fire down. Traffic blockades were removed around 11 p.m. The cause of the fire and the value of the damage still remain under investigation.
