Garland apartment fire may have been arson

GARLAND — A man was seen crawling through the window of a Garland apartment Sunday morning. Two minutes later, a fire was reported.


They’re not so sure.

Eight units at Garland’s Saturn Square Apartments went up in flames around 10:30 a.m. Sunday. No one was injured, but it took Garland Fire Department five engines and three trucks to put out the two-alarm blaze.

Now, it’s the Garland Police Department saying they were called to the apartment at 10:28 a.m. because of a man crawling through a window in that same unit.

Residents heard the same thing.

“We didn’t know what was happening because the neighbors on top were saying somebody broke the window and threw a backpack in there and a big explosion happened,” Saturn Square resident Eric Luna told NewsFix.

Investigators are still investigating whether or not this is an arson case or just a case of terrible timing.
