Vacant House Catches Fire In Grayson County

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- Firefighters responded to a fire that destroyed a vacant home on a rural road on Tuesday afternoon.

Tom Bean, Bells, Howe, and Whitewright firefighters responded to the 500 block of Key Road near Luella around 2:30 p.m. and found a trailer on fire.

The house was vacant but a woman who used to live in the house says she lost some of her possessions, including clothes and mattresses.

"I was getting ready for a yard sale, flicked a cigarette. I didn't think anything about it, got to high grass or something and the next thing I know it's smoking and I'm telling people to get out and I'm calling 911," says fire victim Asia Andres-Yancey.

It was about 15 minutes before the resident noticed anything burning, and then the fire took off, Andres-Yancey said.

There are no fire hydrants in the area, but Tom Bean firefighters were able to get water from other departments' fire trucks, assistant fire chief Jason Langford said.

No one was hurt and the cause is under investigation.
