One resident is hospitalized in serious condition after a major fire swept the Forrest Oaks Apartments on Evers Rd. in Leon Valley early Saturday, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

   The fire broke out about 1:30 a.m. and quickly spread, prompting firefighters from Castle Hills, Helotes and Balcones Heights to provide mutual aid.

  When the first units arrived, flames were coming out of the second floor of the complex.

 As crews went door to door pulling residents out of their apartments, other units began putting water on the fire.

  No word yet on a cause, but damage is estimated at $300,000.
