A fire forced residents to flee their apartment complex.

It happened last night at the Woodtrail apartments on Richmond at Gessner in southwest Houston.

Firefighters say the fire began inside a storage room on the balcony of a third-floor unit. They were able to quickly put out the flames.

A resident in that unit was by herself and called 9-1-1. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
