Fire at Parkway Villa Apartments

On Sunday evening, an apartment fire broke out at the Parkway Villa apartment complex. According to KFDX News Channel Three, the incident happened at about 5:30 p.m. There was reportedly one person inside of the apartment complex at the time of the fire. That man jumped out of a second story window to escape the blaze. Additionally, two firefighters were injured on the scene. An overhang fell onto one of the firefighters and the other one suffered from heat exhaustion.

Parkway Villa Apartment Fire

At this time, very few details have been released about the Parkway Villa fire. We do know that the cause of the fire is still under investigation with local authorities, but already the building is being described as a total loss. Apparently, this eight-apartment structure was the only one to catch fire in the Parkway Villa complex. There’s no word on the condition or extent of injuries involved with the firefighters or the occupant who jumped out of a window.

Fire Destroys Three Buildings in Chillicothe

A fire in Chillicothe destroyed three buildings on Monday, including an antique store and a drycleaner. According to KFDX News Channel Three, the incident happened at about 10:30 a.m. on the corner of FM 91 and US 287, in downtown Chillicothe. Two workers and the owner of the antique store were in the buildings when the fire started. Thankfully, all three of them were able to escape.

Between 80 and 100 Firefighters on the Scene

At this time, officials suspect that the two workers were welding on a tank, located behind the antique store and drycleaner, which may have contained a liquid or powder substance that caught fire. Firefighters and first responders from Chillicothe, Vernon and Quanah were on the scene battling the flames for hours. The three buildings that were burned down included the antique store, a drycleaner and a building that was being used for storage.
