Management at southwest Houston apartment complex is working to find a few residents a new place to stay. Fire sparked at the complex on Richmond near Rice last night. The fire spread into several separate attics. One resident says it may have started with a light outside in the courtyard.

"Some woman noticed it, she threw water on it but it didn't help," said Omero Longoria with the Houston Fire Department. "The smoke alerted a lot of people."

Investigators have not determined a cause. The entire complex was evacuated and no one was hurt. Several units sustained smoke and water damage.
