AUSTIN, Texas (FOX7 Austin) – The Austin Fire Department said firefighters have responded to two high-rise fires in the last two weeks.

In both cases, the fires started after someone threw away flammable materials that were not properly extinguished.

As Austin’s skyline becomes more and more crowded, the potential for a deadly fire becomes more and more likely.
