Apartment Fire Leaves One Homeless

One resident is without a home after a Wednesday afternoon fire at a Central Lubbock apartment complex. The fire broke out around four o'clock at the Galaxy Apartments at 43rd and Avenue J.

Garett Nelson with the Fire Marshal's Office says the fire was caused by an air-conditioning unit. "Air conditioner type unit in the window to the kitchen. For some reason, it overheated, and caused a fire on some combustible material that just below it on the inside, fell out and started an additional fire on the outside," said Nelson.

The displaced resident was inside at the time of the fire, but was able to get out unharmed. The owners of the apartments have put him up in a hotel for the time being.
