SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Survivors of a deadly fire at a San Antonio-area senior living complex could soon be allowed to retrieve some belongings.

KSAT-TV (https://bit.ly/1L4TLCu ) reported Thursday a judge has been asked to lift part of a temporary restraining order meant to preserve evidence. Attorney Jamie Shaw, representing some residents, says the agreement is pending with Wedgwood Apartments in Castle Hills.

The Dec. 28 fire killed five people, injured more than a dozen and left about 250 residents displaced. A sixth resident died later.

Shaw says the proposal would allow re-entry except to the third floor, where the fire apparently started, and to the damaged top floor of the 11-story building. The cause remains under investigation.

A Wedgwood company statement says the building remains uninhabitable as inspections continue, with no firm re-entry date.
