Lufkin — Residents of Silver Creek Apartment’s Block Six spent Wednesday picking through their waterlogged and smoke-damaged belongings after a fire tore through the units early that morning.

“I went to bed, but then I heard someone saying that there was smoke,” said Sheila Merchant, who lived in one of the apartments that caught fire. “People were rushing outside, and we just stood together and watched the apartment go up in smoke.”
