Fire guts Oldsmar apartment

Jessica Howard holds a porcelain angel and a baby bottle after sorting through her burned out apartment Tuesday at the Village at Old Tampa Bay in Oldsmar. A fire Monday night destroyed nearly everything she, her husband and two small daughters own and killed a pet cat. A vacant apartment above Howard's unit also was destroyed. Six others had either smoke or water damage. One was flooded when a water pipe burst. Damage was estimated at $50,000, according to a manager of the company that owns the complex. The fire's cause is under investigation.
