Shortly before 5:30 AM, Beaumont Fire Rescue units responded to the report of a structure fire at 1067 Corley. When firefighters arrived, they found one room on fire in a duplex. Occupants of both apartments were able to escape without injury before firefighters arrived. The fire was quickly controlled and confined to the one apartment. The fire appears to have been caused by an electrical short. The occupant of the apartment where the fire occurred said he was awakened by his smoke detector. He was able to then alert his neighbors. Red Cross was called to assist the occupants.
