SHERMAN, TX -- A Sherman home is destroyed by fire Wednesday afternoon.

Grayson County Fire Marshal, Kevin Walton, says an unattended burn barrel at a mobile home on Smith Oaks Road, got out of control, quickly spreading throughout the home.

A neighbor says he could only watch his friends house go up in flames.

"If you could put devestation in all one emotion that's the only way to explain it. I really don't know. I'm hurting -- hurting for them real bad," said friend, James Erwin.

No one was home at the time, officials are investigating.
