It also isn't the first time a fire has happened at the Country Club Apartments.

In 2007, the fire that broke out around midnight -- the same time the fire started Saturday -- and destroyed eight units, the same amount destroyed this time around.

And the rain today didn't help residents trying to salvage anything.

Flames shot through the roof of the apartments near Interstate 40. Firefighters worked throughout the early morning hours to put out the flames.

Dozens of residents were evacuated from the building and were allowed back in around 3 a.m.

"It was just getting started then shortly after the flames were rising a little above the roof and coming out the front and the back a little bit," resident Susan Weaver said. "But the fire department was right on it. They did a good job."

Some residents had the power and water shut off as maintenance is working on repairs.

A neighbor says one woman who lost her apartment was an expectant mother a few months away from her delivery.

Still no word on from officials on what caused the fire.
