Father, Son Die in Port Hueneme Apartment Fire

A fire at an apartment complex killed a father and son early Friday in Port Hueneme.

Ventura County firefighters responded to a fire at 4:10 a.m. at an upper unit of an apartment complex in the 200 block of East C Street, authorities said.

A mother and daughter who lived in the unit escaped, Ventura County Fire authorities said. The father and son died in the blaze.

The fire ravaged the second story apartment unit and more of the apartment building before the fire was knocked down at 4:25 a.m.

Carlos Milan, who lives directly below the family's unit, said he was able to get out with his dog and a blanket.

Ventura fire officials said the cause of the fire was still unknown. It was not immediately clear if there were alarms and sprinklers inside.
