Four Injured in Arlington area Apartment Fire Arlington, Texas (July 10, 2022) – An apartment fire in Arlington left four people injured on Sunday morning. Three of the four were forced to jump from the second story to escape from the fire. The final injury was in one of the responding firefighters, who suffered an injury due to heat.

Chief Pedro Arevalo of the Arlington Fire Department said they had to contact a rehab unit to come out and support the department as they battled the flames and the heat. The rehab unit works to keep firefighter hydrated through IVs and offers them a place to cool down after battling a fire.

In total, officials estimate that four to eight families were displaced due to the fire at the complex. Additionally, three units were burned in the incident. The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.
