Eight Month Old Child Burned in Houston Apartment Fire: Heater Blamed

Posted: 02-05-11Category:

Houston Fire TruckAn eight-month old baby has been hospitalized for burn injuries from a fire at a southwest Houston Apartment Complex. The fire started around 9:40pm Friday night, February 4, 2011,  at the Town Park apartments on Harwin near Park Front. Firefighters say the central heating unit above the bathroom ignited, and the fire spread from the first floor all the way up into the attic. The tar roof caused problems for firefighters, but they eventually got the flames out. "Right now we are still having trouble, we are still trying to find the last little bit of fire. So we've had to kinda tear down some sheetrock and walls," said Richard Hollas, HPD District Chief. The baby was injured while the parents were trying to escape from the fire. No word on the baby's condition.
