Kids Start Apartment Fire

By  | 

Children playing with matches are to blame for a fire at Southgate Apartments Saturday night.

Investigators say the children were catching the carpet on fire.
College Station fire crews arrived at the Southgate Village Apartments just before 11 pm and found flames and smoke pouring out of a second floor window. Everyone was safely evacuated. The fire was under control within half an hour.

The three families who lost their homes, are now in new apartments.
