SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) — Authorities in San Marcos say they’ve recovered the bodies of three people in the rubble of two apartment complex buildings destroyed by fire.

The blaze that broke out before dawn Friday gutted the Iconic Village Apartments and Vintage Pad Apartments in San Marcos, between Austin and San Antonio.

Five people had been listed as unaccounted for since the flames were extinguished.

The city said in a statement Sunday the remains of the three have been taken to the Travis County Medical Examiner’s office for autopsy and identification.

Six other people were injured, including one being treated for life-threatening injuries at a San Antonio hospital. Cause of the fire hasn’t yet been determined.
