GALVESTON —Tenants of a five-story apartment building downtown awoke Friday morning to neighbors yelling, “fire!” and police kicking in doors along a smoke-filled hallway to alert residents of the deadly blaze.

One resident, a man in his 60s, died. Firefighters and police helped rescue four other people and two dogs from the 5 a.m. blaze that displaced about 30 tenants at Justine apartments, 503 21st Street above Bob’s Grocery, officials said.
