Second floor apartment catches fire on Mockingbird Lane

Residents evacuated when neighboring second-floor apartment porch caught fire Thursday evening.

Residents of a Mockingbird Lane apartment were evacuated when a second-floor neighboring apartment caught fire Thursday evening.

No people were inside the building - located in the 2500 block of Mockingbird Lane - during the fire at 5:32 p.m., said Victoria Fire Department Battalion Chief Shannon Martin.

One person was transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation when he went up the apartment complex's stairs to knock on a door to make sure no one was home, Martin said.

Martin said most of the damage was limited to the outside of the structure, but there was heat and smoke damage inside.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
