Early Morning Fire Destroys Condominium

An early morning fire that destroyed an entire condominium unit near Lake Palestine.

It happened around 12:15 this morning at the lake village condominiums on Big Eddy road in Flint.

Fire firefighters believe this fire started on the third floor.

They say a family staying here started a fire in the fireplace, and it was not put out correctly.

One of the guests went from condo to condo waking people up to get them out of the building.

Smith county fire investigators say it took about 2 hours to get the fire contained.

Will have more on this story tonight at KLTV 7 News at 5, 6, and 10PM.
