HOUSTON, TX - Dozens of people are without a home after a fire Monday night destroyed part of a northwest Houston apartment complex.

The call came in just before 9 p.m. at the Falls on Antoine apartment complex. Crews ended up calling for a third alarm because the fire was so massive and it took them more than an hour to get it under control. One woman was transported to the hospital.

This is the same complex that was damaged by fire back in July 2014. That's when flames ripped through a building, damaging 55 apartments and displacing more than 130 people. Residents say enough is enough.

"I think they need to go ahead and close these apartments down," said neighbor George Price. "There's no point if you have a fire every year and you still have them open. Just shut them down because they're not safe for anyone here, especially all the kids who live in these apartments. What more do you want? Do you want a child to die next? Is that what you want?"

HFD's arson investigation team is working to figure out what started the flames this time.
