An apartment fire left a mother and her three children homeless Wednesday morning.
The fire broke out just before 11 a.m. at Oak Ridge Apartments on Riverside Drive near Bass Road.
Macon-Bibb County firefighters say the fire was accidentally caused by a short in the power cord for a fan. The fire was contained to the bedroom with the fan although heat and smoke damaged the rest of the downstairs apartment.
Three adjoining apartments sustained minor smoke damage.
