KILGORE, TX(KLTV)-  No answers yet tonight on what sparked an early morning apartment fire.

A viewer sent us a picture to the loop@kltv.com of the fire at the Meadow Green Village apartments in Kilgore.

Four apartment units were gutted before crews were able to put the fire out.

Witnesses tell us the fire started in an upper apartment.

 "I woke up around two this morning and went to the kitchen window and saw the fire. I seen the flames coming from the backside of the apartment. It burnt for a good three or four hours before they got it completely out," said apartment tenant, Brandon Davis.

Fortunately all the residents managed to escape from their apartments during the fire.

Right now, fire investigators tell us they don't know what caused the blaze.
