Three families are in new apartments after losing their homes to a fire on Christmas. The Red Cross tells us they gave food, clothing and bedding to all the families. They were relocated to other units at the London Park apartments on Bammel-North Houston. It took firefighters five hours control the flames on Friday.

They say the lack of a working fire hydrant inside the complex hampered the effort.
