Electrical Problems Blamed for Fires in Apartment Complex

Eight Low Country families are without homes after two overnight fires at the Mossy Oaks Village apartments in Beaufort.

Firefighters say the first fire destroyed a downstairs apartment. And then, a few hours later, fire erupted in an upstairs apartment and quickly spread to the attic.

Investigators believe electrical problems are likely to blame.
