  • Electrical fire displaces Texas family of eight on Christmas Eve

Two people, two dogs, and two cats were able to safely get out of the home when the fire started. When they went up to the front door of the home to investigate, they saw thick and black smoke billowing from the door frame. Walsh said three people were injured, with two refusing transport and a third transported to a hospital in good condition.

The building, which contained 17 units, was heavily damaged, Hall said.

Officials said it took 23 firefighters 20 minutes to control the flames.

No one was home when the fire began and no injuries were reported, but the family that lives there will be displaced because of the damage, fire officials said.


Fire crews responded on a cold Christmas Eve, with temperatures in the teens above zero at the time of the call.

Following the fire, Spartanburg Police Department posted this to its Facebook page: "Thanks to the life saving efforts by our fire departments, no lives were lost from this tragic incident".

"I don't want to come back to a home that caught on fire", Fuentes said.

He said it was too early to say what caused the fire.
