Dallas firefighters are working to extinguish a blaze at an apartment complex near White Rock Lake.

Dallas Fire-Rescue responded at 11:15 a.m. Friday to the Oaks White Rock apartments, located at 9000 Poppy Drive. 

There were reports of smoke coming from the roof of a three-story apartment building. Fire crews located the blaze in the attic and put it out after an hour, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.  

Investigators said the fire was accidental. It started when a worker using a heat gun inadvertently ignited combustible materials near the roof.

No injuries were reported, and interior damage was minimal. Four units had varying degrees of smoke and water damage, Evans said.
