HOUSTON – Nearly a dozen apartment units were damaged or destroyed in an early-morning fire in northwest Houston.

The Houston Fire Department says the fire broke out at about 12:31 a.m. Thursday in the 5900 block of Flintlock.

No injuries were reported, but several residents at the Savoy Manor apartments are now looking for another place to live.

"I started to panic," said fire victim Anquienette Kerr. "I just sat here and watched my apartment go into flames. I lost everything."

Kerr was able to get her two children and fiance out safely but little else.

"I'm glad my family is safe and sound... materialistic things can be replaced; it's just hard when you lose everything and have to start from the beginning."

The fire was tapped out a little over an hour after it broke out. The cause is under investigation however arson has been ruled out.
