Far North Dallas condo complex catches on fire twice in days before Christmas

A condo building in Far North Dallas caught fire again Wednesday just hours after another destructive fire.

The first fire happened just before 2 a.m. at the Parkway Quarter Condominiums on Bent Tree Forest Drive, near the Dallas North Tollway and Keller Springs Road.

About 60-70 firefighters had to help put that fire out, which had spread into the spaces between the walls and floors.

Dallas Fire-Rescue thinks an electrical problem on the second floor sparked that blaze.

No one was hurt, but several units in the three-story building were destroyed or damaged.

The second fire started around 1 p.m. in a different part of the building.

Two people inside had to be rescued.

Firefighters do not think the fires are related but are investigating to be sure.

The Red Cross is helping the residents who were displaced just days before Christmas.
