Apartment fire in Marietta

By  | 

MARIETTA, Okla. -- A fire in a Marietta apartment complex destroyed everything a family owned.

Marietta and Shadydale firefighters were called to the Fairfield Apartments on Arch Street around six o'clock Monday morning.

They managed to keep the flames from spreading to other units, but couldn't save the family's home.

A man and his two kids were home at the time. Family members say a 16-year-old girl saved her brother’s life.

Firefighters believe electrical problems started the fire. The apartment owner was able to relocate the family to another unit.
