TOM BEAN, Tex. -- A family in Tom Bean lost their home to fire on Thursday afternoon. Firefighters say the trailer on Whispering Oaks Road is a complete loss.
When crews arrived around noon Thursday, the home was fully engulfed.
The Sherman and Whitewright Fire Departments also responded. They say it was difficult getting water to the home because there are no hydrants nearby.
At one point firefighters say they were afraid the homeowner was inside of the house.
The local American Red Cross is helping that family.
