One apartment unit destroyed in Tuesday morning fire


Two apartment units are damaged after a fire erupted at a Waco apartment complex Tuesday morning. The incident occurred at the Lakewood Villas in the 1500 block of Spring Street at around 11 a.m.

A Waco Fire Department spokesman says the fire was started by two children playing in the lower, unoccupied apartment. The fire in the unoccupied unit eventually rose up to a second unit above.

The second unit was occupied by an adult, a teenager, and 3-year-old child. Fire officials say because of the fire, the second unit is uninhabitable.

The two children were interviewed, and one of them said they started the fire, but didn't mean to.  They were not hurt.

Four fire engines, and one fire truck responded to the scene.
