Sherman firefighters on scene of a house fire on Scott Street

Posted:

At 11:30 a.m., Sherman firefighters were called to a house fire in the 800 block of Scott Street near the Sherman Senior Citizens Center. First responders on the scene had concerns of a potential backdraft situation as the thick black smoke began retreating back into the home. They immediately started running hoses to hydrants and battling the fire. Once inside, firefighters found a couch in flames. They knocked the fire out quick, but not before about $13,000 in damage was done. One person lived at the home, and wasn't injured in the fire. Smoking may have been the cause.
