Apartment Garage Destroyed in Midday Fire on Lazy Lane

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Firefighters were called out to an apartment in the 1500 block of Lazy Lane just before noon Monday, where they found a garage engulfed in flames.

One resident at that apartment, which is located near Brawner and Norton on Lazy Lane, said she heard a loud pop just seconds before she smelled the smoke.

"We actually heard it, then we smelled the fire," resident Gracie Naranjo said. "And we came out of the apartment and the building was on fire already."

One apartment nearest the garage did receive some water damage, but luckily, firefighters were able to control the blaze quickly. Investigators are still trying to determine how the fire got started.
