Three Bryan families are trying to pick up the pieces, after a devastating fire forced them out of their homes.

The blaze broke out around 5 a.m. Tuesday on Monito Way in West Bryan.

It took 28 firefighters about four hours to extinguish the flames, and even forced one woman, and her child to jump from the second floor of their apartment.

"I just grabbed my child and she was scared to jump out the window so I threw her out that window, and I jumped right behind her," Tasha Tucker who escaped the fire said.

Tucker says she then ran and knocked on her neighbors' doors to alert them of the fire. Everything was destroyed at Tucker's home.

The Bryan Fire Department says it's still investigating the cause of the fire, but officials believe it was accidental.
