Families are trying to salvage what's left after fire and smoke damaged their homes at an apartment complex in northwest Houston late last night. Smoke and flames billowed from an upstairs apartment off Nathaniel and Ledge. Firefighters worked quickly and put out the blaze in about 10 minutes. Everyone made it out safely. Firefighters say the fire started in the chimney.

Only one unit was burned. Smoke and water damaged the surrounding apartments.
