Structure fire at I-30 & FM 551 in Fate fully contained

FATE, TX (Aug. 30, 2022) – A structure fire broke out at the Prose apartment complex at 5:37 a.m. Consequently, one building structure was lost. However, fire crews were quick to respond to the incident. The building was not occupied and there were no injuries due to the fire. Evacuations were held in the Williamsburg area to the immediate west and south of the site during the incident. All commercial buildings close-by and under construction, including FRESH by Brookshire’s, were unaffected.

A huge multi-agency response was critical in ensuring the fire was contained and did not spread to more structures. Agencies responding to the incident included: Fate, Rockwall, Royse City, Greenville, Heath, McLendon-Chisholm, Rowlett, Wylie, and Cash. Water infrastructure, including the City’s water tower, are still functioning normally. The cause of the fire is still being determined.
