Three Dead in Killeen Apartment Fire
An early morning Killeen apartment fire has claimed the lives of three tenants. Firefighters said they found a fourth tenant that was unharmed by the blaze. None of the bodies found have been identified at this time.
KWTV-TV in Killeen reported that Fire Chief J.D. Gardner said just before 7 a.m. firefighters began a search of a downstairs apartment at Casa Tejas Apartments where they believe the fast-moving blaze started that then leveled the entire 24-unit, two-story complex.
Reports also said that tenants were jumping off the balconies of their two story complex to avoid the flames.
