MEAD, Okla. -- A home in Mead, Okla. was destroyed by fire on Saturday night and is considered a total loss.
West Bryan County Fire Chief Brandon Hall says a charging battery inside a boat started the fire. The fire then engulfed the carport and spread to the lake house on Sunset Cove.
Hall said a man was home at the time, but was able to escape the fire unharmed.
Firefighters said they extinguished the fire within about 30 minutes, and stopped it from spreading to nearby homes.
