Fire in South Austin leaves 44 displaced

Posted on September 1st, 2010 No Comments

The Bainbridge Villas on Southridge Drive in South Austin caught fire early Sunday morning around 5:30 AM.  The fire engulfed four units of the complex and left about $840,000 in structural damage.  Eight other units suffered less serious damage from the fire.

Seventy members of Austin’s Fire Department responded to the two-alarm fire to see residents jumping from apartment windows.  Four people were taken to nearby hospitals, some with broken bones from leaping from windows, and one resident was transported to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio for severe burning on her feet.  A total of forty-four people were displaced from their homes because of the fire.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost their homes and belongings in the fire.
