Amarillo apartment fire injures one, cause unknown

Posted: Updated:

 

 An Amarillo woman was taken to a local hospital to be treated following an apartment fire in south Amarillo Saturday night.

Around 8:30 Saturday night, a fire was reported in the apartments of Independence Village at 4700 Virginia. Fire crews evacuated the first floor of the building and found that the fire was controlled by an automatic sprinkler system.
 
     One woman was removed from the building and taken to the hospital, but her injuries appeared to be non-life threatening.  Reports indicate a heating pad may have ignited the fire, but a fire marshal was called to the scene and an investigation into the cause is ongoing.
