Gusty winds turned what had been a small rooftop fire into a massive blaze that destroyed a large apartment complex under construction near downtown Houston, authorities said. Dramatic raw video shows one construction worker rescued as the part of the building crumbles in flames.
Update: Karen Jones shot this cellphone video on Tuesday from her nearby office as the fire consumed the planned $50 million luxury apartment complex, AP reports.
