Security Deposit

This is my first time renting my property. I purchased the Residential Lease Aggreement from this site for Texas which was signed by myself and my tenants.  My question- the tenants had 2 old industrial refrigerators stored in the garage. One of them shorted and caught the home on fire after only living in the property for 2 months. They have sent me a certified letter requesting the security deposit back. Am I responsible for payment of this deposit or since it was their equipment that caused the damage would they be liable for the damages it caused?
