TN: Faulty Electrical wiring sparks $75K Apartment Fire

Memphis, TN: Faulty electrical wiring started a fire Wednesday that damaged four apartments and forced three families from their homes, according to investigators.

The flames started just after 4:30 p.m. in the Cypress Garden Apartments, 1209 Springdale St. The fire started in an apartment’s bedroom wall, but three other units ended up being damaged during the electrical fire, according to emergency crews.

No one was injured during the fire, but the damage was so extensive that the Red Cross had to provide shelter for several families.

Investigators say the fire caused about $75,000 in damage.
