CASTLE HILLS, Texas (AP) - A schedule has been announced to allow survivors of a deadly fire at a San Antonio-area senior living complex to retrieve some personal items.

A statement from Wedgwood Apartments in Castle Hills says residents each get an hour to collect essential belongings.

The escorted visits, by appointment, to various floors of the 11-story complex began Friday and continue through next week.

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

Displaced residents were delayed from entering the damaged structure amid safety concerns and the continuing investigation into the blaze. Authorities have said the fire apparently started on the third floor.
