SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) — Authorities in Texas say an apartment fire that killed five people last summer was intentionally set.

Fred Milanowski, special agent in charge for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said during a news conference Friday that a criminal investigation into the July 20 blaze is underway.

He says investigators know how the fire at Iconic Village apartments and the Vintage Pads apartments in San Marcos was started and where, but won’t reveal those details.
