Officials Release Preliminary Cause of Bryan Apartment Fire

We now know the preliminary cause of Friday's devastating apartment fire in Bryan.

Bryan fire officials say a television may be to blame for a fire at the Bryan Arms Apartment Complex.

Witnesses allegedly saw the TV erupt in flames, which quickly spread to nearby curtains.

Families living in 12 apartments had to be evacuated, four of those apartments were destroyed.

Officials say the television was an older model. They say anytime you have electrical trouble with an appliance, it's best to get rid of the device.
