Heater Causes Small Fire at Eldon Square Apartments

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

When the weather is as cold as it was Friday in the Coastal Bend, pretty much everyone has their heater on; but after a small afternoon fire, fire officials want to send a message.

"Just make sure your heaters are working properly," said Captain Tony Perez of the Corpus Christi Fire Department.

The fire broke out at the Eldon Square Apartments in the 400 block of Eldon Drive. When firefighters arrived, there was smoking coming from an apartment. Once inside, they noticed that the heater had caught fire.

The family living there did not have much fire damage, but their apartment did sustain smoke and water damage.
