Denison Family Shaken After Escaping Christmas Eve Fire

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- A Texoma family is still shaken after escaping a Christmas Eve house fire.

It happened early Tuesday in the 400 block of West Monterey Street. The main part of the fire was contained to the upstairs, but the resident tells us the home is a total loss.

She says she had re-modeled the house six years ago and lived there with her daughter and four grandchildren. She says her upstairs tenant alerted her to the flames around 1 a.m.

"So I opened the door and he said the house was on fire so all my children and my daughter they were asleep so I was screaming to get aimee up and let's get these kids out of the house," says fire victim Cynthia Anderson Crow.

"She was yelling my name, get up get up and there's the house on fire and immediately got the kids in my hands and took off running outside," says fire victim Aimee Anderson.

The American Red Cross put the family up in a hotel for a few nights, but they say they're not sure what they're going to do after that. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
