Fire officials rule morning fire in Temple vacant building as unintentional

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) - Investigators have ruled a Wednesday morning fire at a vacant building in Temple as unintentional.

Fire crews responded to the fire about 9 a.m. Wednesday at a building on South Martin Luther King Dr. in Temple. The building, which was an old car dealership that was bought by The Family Life Center, had its roof recently collapsed in, and it was under negotiations to be renovated. The building had no electricity, and has been vacant for the last 2 years.

A man was asleep inside when the fire started, but was injured trying to escape the flames. David William Halsey, 45, was arrested for trespassing, but fire officials do not believe he started the fire. Investigators found evidence of other people that had been staying in the building.

The fire was control about 10:30 a.m. Investigators have ruled that the fire was unintentional and started by an undetermined heat source that was too close to bedding material.
