The engines responding include six fire engines, one Heavy Rescue, one Tower Ladder, two ambulances, two battalion chiefs and two EMS supervisors. There were also numerous support and chief officers on scene. The Fort Hood Fire Department provided one engine company that responded. Atmos and Oncor also responded, along with the Killeen Building Inspections division.
All three structures have been deemed uninhabitable. The cause is not known. The Killeen Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management was on scene to assist with a displaced resident.
