Houston, TX - A massive fire is burning out of control in the Montrose area. Thick black smoke is billowing into the air and can be seen for miles. The fire started around 12:30 at the corner of W. Dallas at Marconi, where an apartment complex was under construction.

Flames have already engulfed and destroyed several of the buildings. The buildings are surrounded by many other apartment homes and traffic is tied up as law enforcement closed down nearby streets. Houston firefighters continue to battle the four-alarm blaze.
