Early morning apartment fire prompts concern over Greenbelt

Two people are dead and nine are displaced after an apartment fire in South Austin early Monday morning.

According to the Austin Fire Department, it started at the Woods Apartments off Barton Skyway. A section of the complex collapsed as the flames rose.

One of the big concerns for people who live in this area when it comes to fires like this is how close it is to the greenbelt and worry some of those flames could ignite some of this vegetation.

According to the Travis County Fire Marshal's office, not only do fires in the Greenbelt spread but fighting them is a challenge.
