GALVESTON (October 11, 2013)--One person was killed and four others were hurt in an apartment building fire early Friday in Galveston.
The fire was reported at around 5 a.m. Friday at a five-story building near the downtown area, fire officials said.
Authorities were trying to determine what sparked the third-floor fire at the Justine Apartments.
Firefighters helped get five people out of the burning structure.
One man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The other four victims were treated at the scene for injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
Fire Chief Mike Wisko said the fire was contained to one unit and the man who died was rescued from that apartment.
His name wasn't immediately released.
The fire was put out within about a half-hour.
