Temple: Fire In Apartment Wall Displaces Five

TEMPLE (April 11, 2013)—A fire in an interior wall of an apartment Thursday afternoon at the Beverly Arms Apartments at 611 West French Ave. in Temple displaced five residents, Temple Fire & Rescue said.

The fire was reported at around 3:45 p.m. Thursday and was caused by a soldering torch used while plumbing repairs were being made, officials said.

The three occupants of the second-floor apartment in which the fire started were moved temporarily to another unit in the complex.

A first-floor unit sustained minor water damage and the two residents will stay with relatives until repairs are completed.
