Large Fire Destroys Luella Home

8-15-06 - Fire destroyed a Luella mobile home southeast of Sherman Tuesday night. A neighbor on Cedar Road near highway 11 spotted the flames coming from the house around 8:30pm.

Sherman and Tom Bean firefighters responded, but the fire was burning out of control by the time they arrived. They fought the fire from a defensive formation to keep it from spreading.

The homeowner arrived after firefighters – it appears no one was inside when the flames began. There is no word yet on what caused the fire.
