San Marcos seeks information on 5 residents unaccounted for after apartment complex fire near Texas State University


Five people remain unaccounted for after a Friday apartment complex fire in San Marcos that destroyed 110 units and left more than 200 residents without a home.
The fire was reported at 4:27 a.m. Friday morning at the Iconic Village Apartments and Village Pad Apartments north of the Texas State University campus. The city issued a release of names in the late afternoon. The five include:
James Miranda
Haley Frizzell
Belinda Moats
David Ortiz
Dru Estes
On Saturday morning, the city confirmed there have been no updates in finding the five that are believed to have been in the apartments prior to the fire. Officials said if anyone has information as to the whereabouts of any of the five, they are asked to call 512-754-2291 as soon as possible.
The fire scene still has dangerous hotspots, according to the San Marcos Fire Department, so the investigation led by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives will begin Sunday.
Six people with injuries were transported to hospitals. As of Friday night, one remained in critical condition in a San Antonio hospital and three were released from a San Marcos hospital.
