More than one million dollars worth of property damages occurred as a result of two five-alarm fires in northeast Dallas.

At least 82 firefighters responded to a fire in the 9400 block of Timberleaf Drive in Lake Highlands on January 22 at around 6 p.m. At least 18 condominium units that were being renovated were destroyed by fire, amounting to $1.6 million worth in damages.

While battling the first fire, fire crews received another five-alarm fire at Midtown apartments in the 6800 block of Shady Brook Lane at around 8 p.m. The apartment fire was believed to be caused by an electrical short circuit in the HVAC and had an estimated damage of $50,000. At least six families were evacuated from the apartment blaze.

Only one firefighter was reportedly injured in the two fires that occurred.
