Three-alarm fire in NW Harris County.

About seven units were damaged in the blaze, displacing about a dozen people.

"We got back from the store and then we saw fire and we saw a guy walking out with a TV. We immediately went back to our apartment to get the cat carrier, dog leashes and we had our hamster inside," said one fire victim, who still hasn't been able to examine the damage at her apartment.

Another victim says he was told by firefighters that the fire might have started in a kitchen.

"They said cooking; someone was cooking. We really don't know. It didn't really look like a kitchen fire to me," he said.
