BFD: Twin City Condo Fire Intentionally Set

BRYAN, Texas A multi-agency investigation is under way after the body of a man was found inside a home by firefighters at the Twin City Condominiums in Bryan.

The Bryan Deputy Fire Marshal William Bouse says that four small fires were intentionally set, but they didn't spread very quickly and only caused minimal damage.

The victim has been identified as 61-year-old Michael Stanger.

Police say the fire broke out around noon Wednesday in the 1100 block of Verde Drive at the Twin City Condominiums.

Bryan Firefighters were able to put the flames out fairly quickly and the damage was limited to the one unit.

Investigators say they do not believe foul play was involved in Stanger's death.

Bryan Police are still waiting for autopsy results to come back before they will comment on how Stanger died.
