MAJOR CY-FIRE COULD ALSO AFFECT YOU WHERE YOU LIVE

Ten people were injured when a three-alarm fire broke out at an apartment complex in northwest Harris County.
The fire started at 3:10am at the Villages of Copperfield apartment complex at 8727 Point Park Drive near Highway 6.
Eyewitnesses say they watched as people jumped from the upper levels of the three-story apartment complex in an effort to escape smoke and flames.
A woman reportedly dropped her baby from a stairwell to bystanders down below, who caught the child.
Neighbors say they also watched as a man pushed a mattress out his third-floor window. Moments later, he and two children, a boy and a girl, jumped out of the same window onto the mattress below. The boy reportedly injured his arm in the jump.

Here in Montgomery County we have many complexes that are multi-story. Some of the newer ones are sprinkled but that does little if a fire starts in an attic. Apartment builders are not required to put sprinklers in the attic area. With an electrical fire, heater fire or lightning caused fire, an attic fire can be one of the worst. Some of these are two story and some three. Conroe also has a complex that has those on top of a parking garage.

Another thing recently has come to light in apartments with closed garages below them is the new vehicles which do not require a key. Just last week over a dozen people went to the hospital due to carbon monoxide poisoning.  A vehicle which was thought to be off but wasn’t filled the complex with the deadly gas.

As Christmas is just around the corner give a gift that can save a life. Fire ladders which hang on a window sill in a time of need are available at home improvement stores. Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are also available, some of those now come with a built in 10-year battery and many of the

Newer alarms you dispose of when the battery goes dead after all the yeas.

Several years ago Woodlands firefighters were faced with a three-story apartment fire. Copperwood Apartments were an assisted living complex in The Woodlands for the elderly. FIre erupted in the complex which was built prior to Montgomery County requiring sprinkler systems. As firefighters fought the massive blaze, other firefighters were on ladders carrying elderly residents from their top floor to the ground.
