The release also says that a person was harmed in the fire. According to the release, the individual was taken to the hospital, with injuries that were not life threatening. Due to the damage caused by the fire, the individual who lived at the apartment will be moved to a new area. No one else was harmed in the fire.

At the time of writing, the cause of the fire has not be revealed.

The press release also adds that "Temple Fire and Rescue responded with nine fire apparatus. The Temple Police Department and Temple EMS were also on-scene."

With heightened chances for wildfires, it's also important to note that private use or selling of fireworks is banned by Bell County. Firework shows aren't affected by the ban, so there will be plenty of ways to celebrate the 4th of July safely.
