The Odessa Fire Department responded to a structure fire at Faudree Ranch apartments late Thursday night. The small fire was located in a closet, and the cause was a six-year-old boy playing with matches.
These apartments have sprinklers, so the fire damage was contained to the closet, but it dumped about 1000 gallons of water on one floor. Three families were displaced due to the water damage from the sprinklers.
It's a reminder of the importance of teaching children about fire safety.
