A family will spend Christmas in mourning after losing a 10-year-old child and their belongings in a devastating apartment fire in southwest Houston.

Arson investigators are still on scene trying to determine what sparked the deadly blaze Monday morning in the 7000 block of South Gessner Road.

Sixty families were left homeless as the fire ripped through their units just after 8 a.m.
