A  Midtown apartment building that was heavily damaged by a massive fire in July 2012 has re-opened.The fire at 3949 Lindell displaced several hundred people. There were no human fatalities, though several pets were killed. 

The cause of the fire was never determined, though officials do not believe it was suspicious.  City fire chief Dennis Jenkerson says the new building goes above and beyond fire code.
