Posted: Updated:

(KRIV) An apartment complex under construction near the historic Montrose District has begun to collapse following a four-alarm fire.

The fire on West Dallas Street near Marconi, first reported as two-alarm status, was later upgraded as the flames spread throughout the five-story building on Tuesday afternoon.

The Houston Fire Department is approaching the fire in defensive mode because of the black smoke and heavy flames.
