GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- A man's mobile home goes up in flames and says he blames his dog. A mobile home on Bass Road in Preston near Lake Texoma caught fire Friday afternoon.
The homeowner says he was painting inside when he left to go to another room. A few minutes later he heard cracking and then saw the dog running down the hall with smoke behind him.
Preston Fire Chief Allen Vols says the house was fully engulfed when crews arrived.
"We were basically able to maintain exposure, save the garage and two other houses close by, and kept fire from spreading," Vols said.
The Preston, Pottsboro, and Locust fire departments all responded.
The house was a total loss.
