AUSTIN (KXAN) – Sixty people, including children, were displaced after a fire at a complex in North Austin Thursday morning.

According to an Austin Fire Department social media post at 4:49 a.m., three units of an apartment building on Sam Rayburn Drive suffered fire damage. Five units had smoke and water damage. All 16 units in the building could not be occupied, AFD said.

AFD said the fire caused an estimated $1.5 million in structural damage and $500,000 in damage to belongings.

The apartment complex is just north of Powell Lane, which is northeast of U.S. 183 and northwest of Interstate 35.

Austin Fire Division Chief Eddie Martinez earlier said, “We are shutting off electricity. We are having electrical issues with the actual building. Austin Energy is on scene to disconnect power to the actual unit.”

AFD told KXAN crews shut off electricity to any fire they go to keep firefighters safe and not get electrocuted.

As for when the power at the building would be restored, AFD said “electricity should not be restored until a code inspector and licensed electrician deem it seem to do so.”

AFD said no one was hurt, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
