Apartment Fire Blamed On Fish Fry

Tyler Fire Investigators believe an overnight apartment fire resulted when the resident fell asleep, while frying fish. Six fire units were called to the Meadowbrook Apartments on South Paluxy just after 10:00 last night. It took them around 40 minutes to get the fire under control. Police say the woman fell asleep while cooking, and the grease caught fire. Her apartment and the apartment above her both received extensive fire, smoke and water damage.
