Firefighter trapped in six-alarm blaze at Dallas condo
DALLAS (CNN) — A firefighter was trapped early Monday in a six-alarm blaze at a Dallas condominium complex, the city's fire department said.
A search is on for the firefighter, one of a team responding to the blaze at the Hearthwood North Condominiums, in northeast Dallas.
"When firefighters arrived at the location, there was lots of smoke coming from the roof of a three-story condominium building," the department said. "An offensive fire attack was initially attempted, but the fire was growing too quickly and caused them to have to move out for a defensive attack."
The fire has been classified as a six-alarm blaze for several reasons, the department said, including the search.
Two residents were treated for smoke inhalation at the scene. Two injured firefighters were taken to a hospital and are expected to recover.
At least five residents have been rescued, the department said. The Red Cross has been called to help displaced residents.
