Man found dead in home after fire near Pottsboro
GRAYSON COUNTY, Texas (KXII) - Firefighters say a man was found dead inside his home after a fire early Sunday morning.
The Locust Volunteer Fire Department says just before 7 a.m., they were called to a structure fire in the Preston Shores subdivision north of Pottsboro.
First responders found a mobile home on fire and were notified by dispatch that the person who lived there was unaccounted for.
While one group of firefighters fought the fire, another group went inside and found a man’s body on the bathroom floor.
Locust CVFD says it appears a small fire pit was left burning on the porch which caught the deck on fire, and spread to the home.
The Grayson County Fire Marshal is investigating.
