FT. MYERS, FL - Residents of the Riverside Landings apartments say a neighbor of the complex is known for starting bonfires. So on Tuesday when there was another fire in Bill Bailey's yard, the first thing the apartment dwellers thought was, "here we go again." Only this time the fire got out of control and spread to nearby apartments. 3 families are displaced after nearly two dozen firefighters battled the afternoon blaze at the complex. But Bailey says it was a short in a wire that caused the fire and not a bonfire. Fire investigate continue the search for a cause.
