LUELLA, TX -- Authorities say a fire that burned a mobile home to the ground in Luella was intentionally set.

Four departments worked to put out the fire Tuesday afternoon. The home was vacant and had no utilities.

The homeowner originally told authorities she thought a cigarette sparked the fire. But Wednesday, the Grayson county fire marshal says she admitted starting it.

The homeowner and three other people reportedly told authorities they were in the process of demolishing the home, and decided to burn it. They have 30 days to clean up the property or citations will be issued.
