Firefighters tackle blaze at Grayson County home

By  | 

SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) -- Firefighters work to control a blaze Friday at a home on Stark Lane.

A home on Stark Lane in Sherman, just north of Howe, burned Friday.

"Well I was coming home from work and I could see the smoke from Howe and I thought well that's kind of out close to our place."

It wasn't Until Ruth Ann Rogers turned onto stark lane that she realized her neighbors home was on fire.

"When I first pulled up, I could see before I pulled in the driveway I could see that the garage was on fire. And then it didn't take long before it had spread to the rest of the house."

Assistant Fire Marshal, Kerry Price, says while they don't know what caused the fire, it started just outside the garage.

"With the winds we had today, the garage door was open and it pushed it across the house."

It took four departments over an hour to get the fire under control.

"Due to not having fire hydrants out here, we had to do a water tender operation so we had to shut down operations for water supply to set up."

Price says everyone was able to make it out safely.

Rogers says her prayers are with the family.

"It's a very sad thing to see your whole home burn down like that. It looks like they lost everything."

The home is a complete loss.

The investigation into what caused the fire will continue on Saturday.
