SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII)-- A fire that damaged a Sherman home Wednesday night rekindled Thursday morning.

Sherman police say around 7 a.m. Thursday a house on the 1600 block of South Rusk St. was on fire, the same house that caught fire around 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Fire officials are investigating what caused the fire to rekindle.

Wednesday night the homeowner walked into their home they noticed a fire in the bathroom and immediately called 911.

As soon as the Sherman Fire Department arrived the fire had spread to other rooms. Flames were contained inside of the house, it did not reach the ceiling or roof.

No injuries were reported, however a dog living in the home was reported missing.

Throughout the night firefighters remained on the scene to remove carbon monoxide from the home. A Sherman-Fire spokesperson says the fire was accidental.

While it is not considered a total loss, the home is uninhabitable. The homeowners are staying with family and did not request assistance from the Red Cross.
