DALLAS (AP) — Two construction workers are missing after a fire prompted the evacuation of thousands of people from a high-rise building in downtown Dallas.
Authorities say an electrical fire started Thursday in the parking garage adjacent to Thanksgiving Tower. The three-alarm fire appeared to be quickly contained but not before smoke billowed through the complex.
Authorities say about 2,800 people were evacuated from the structure.
Firefighters gave some people oxygen as they exited the building. At least two people were taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation.
