Families look for place to stay after their apartments catch fire
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Several families are looking for a place to stay after their apartment units caught fire. The fire started Tuesday around 12:00 a.m. on Howze street, near St. John's in central El Paso.
According to Battalion Chief Brad St. Meyers, a house that had been renovated and converted into four apartment units had caught fire. At this time it's unclear where the fire originated. The families were not able to return to their homes as the El Paso Electric Company turned off electricity in the home. Damages to the units are estimated to be about $20,000.00.
