Fire Damages CS Townhome

Three Texas A&M students were displaced Thursday due to an early morning fire in College Station.

The fire started just before 10 a.m. at the Waterwood Townhomes on Krenek Tap Road.

One of the students came home from class, saw the smoke and called 911.

It took twenty College Station firefighters about fifteen minutes to put the fire out. There were no injuries reported.

The fire appears to be electrical in origin, but the exact cause is still under investigation. Officials said the fire began in an entertainment center in the living room.

There was smoke damage to the entire unit and the College Station Citizens Action Response Team (CART) and the A&M Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) responded to assist the displaced residents.
