Post Date:10/22/2019 9:37 AM
On October 21, 2019, the Abilene Fire Department responded to a 2 alarm structure fire located at Cedar Crest Apartments. Upon arrival, fire crews found a 2nd story apartment balcony on fire. The fire was quickly extinguished, and the complex was checked to ensure there was no fire extension into the structure. Fire Investigators arrived on scene and discovered that a fire had started on the same balcony earlier in the afternoon and had been extinguished by the occupants and maintenance personnel. It was determined that the original fire was the result of an improperly discarded cigarette and the second fire was a rekindle from the earlier fire. The fire is ruled accidental. The fire damage is estimated at $2,000.
