AUSTIN -- Firefighters have released the cause of an apartment fire in East Austin.
The call came in at 7:20 p.m. Wednesday. Firefighters remained on scene for a few hours at the complex, located at the 1136 Poquito Street, to control hot spots.
On Thursday AFD determined damage estimates to be $30,000 structurally and $15,000 in contents. The cause of the fire was due to children playing with matches in an upstairs bedroom.
KVUE News photojournalist J.P. Harrington says firefighters were able to rescue a dog in one of the units.
No one was injured.
