Kitchen fire spreads to neighboring apartments in south Abilene, residents displaced


ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Multiple residents have been displaced after a kitchen fire at an apartment complex in south Abilene.

The fire happened at the Windchase Village Apartments on the 2400 block of Buffalo Gap Road around 2:00 p.m.

First responders at the scene told KTAB and KRBC a resident cooking caused the fire, which spread to his apartment and neighboring units.

This person likely used water to put out a grease fire, investigators believe.

No injuries have been reported but witnesses say they saw a person jump from a balcony to escape the fire and a dog, who did survive, had to be rescued from inside.

Residents from at least two units at the complex have been displaced.
