A second alarm was issued three minutes later when firefighters saw how far the fire had spread.The fire was brought under control at 12:36 a.m. Monday.Crow said it wasnt clear how many tenants were displaced since the complex was only 50 to 60 percent occupied. The cause of the fire was under investigation.The Surrey Oaks Apartments is in a section of Fort Worth where some Woodhaven residents have complained about the conditions of the cluster of apartment complexes.This isnt the first fire at Surrey Oaks. In March 2008, another fire at Surrey Oaks damaged six units, according to Star-Telegram archives.
