Town Square Village Development Fire

Update: The Fire Marshal's Office has determined the fire to be accidental, possibly caused by welding.

Damages from the fire are estimated at costing between 15 to 20 million dollars.


Amarillo, TX - Fire crews responded around 6pm to a large fire at one of the buildings in the Town Square Village development set for opening in 2015.


Heavy smoke and large flames could be seen from as far as Canyon and Happy.

One of the buildings has been destroyed. The fire has been contained.

No one was injured from the fire and crews are still monitoring the blaze said Amarillo Fire Department Captain Dana Havlik.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. 



Statement from The Williams Group:

A fire has destroyed one of our four mixed-use buildings at Town Square.

While this is tragic, we are grateful that no one has been injured.

We want to express our appreciation to the Amarillo Fire and Police departments. These men and women are truly professionals.

We don't want to speculate as to the cause of the fire. We will have more information after the fire marshal has completed their review.

While this is a set back, it is only temporary. We remain firm to our commitment to Amarillo.

The Town Square project will continue as planned.

We thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers.
