Firefighters rushed out to the Lantana Apartments Friday morning to battle yet another fire at the abandoned complex.

The fire was spotted before 11 a.m. at N.W. 10th Street and Greenvale Road. Crews have been to the complex several times before because of fires.

No one lives in the apartments. Over the years, several buildings in the abandoned complex have burned.

The wind blew smoke and embers into a nearby neighborhood, but firefighters monitored the area and made sure there was no danger.

Firefighters soon doused the fire. It's not known what started the blaze. Neighbors have been complaining for months that the abandoned complex is a nuisance and should be torn down.
