Apartment Building Evacuated After Fire Breaks Out

An apartment complex was evacuated near American Pacific and Stephanie when a man reportedly shot himself and set his apartment on fire.

Emergency crews said they were getting two types of calls. One, that there was a fire. The second saying a man was on a balcony with a gun.

When fire crews arrived, they did see a man on a balcony with a gun as well as flames coming from his apartment.

Fire crews waited for police to arrive to actually talk to the man with the gun. Police aren't saying exactly what was said but they did try to talk with the man. That is when he shot and killed himself.

Fire crews then immediately went into the apartment to put out the fire. Two other apartments were also damaged during this incident. The man's apartment was completely destroyed by the flames.

Investigators say that when they took a look inside the apartment, they did notice that it looked like the man set the fire in several places. As of right now, it looks like no one else was inside the apartment during the time of the fire.

Neighbors say they believe the man might have just lost his job and might have been having a problem paying his rent.
