Officials say one apartment unit was destroyed in a fire Monday afternoon in Port Isabel.
Port Isabel firefighters responded to the apartment complex on the corner of Musina and Hickman at approximately 2 p.m. Monday, Fire Chief John Sandoval said. “We arrived on the scene and there was heavy smoke, heavy flames showing,” Sandoval said.
Firefighters began to fight the blaze and entered the apartment where the flames were originating, Sandoval said. Inside, they found a dog inside a kennel, which they rescued. It was unharmed. The remainder of the apartment was unoccupied, Sandoval said.
The apartment’s resident was not home at the time the blaze began, but arrived home and found it on fire, the chief said.
