FRANKSTON, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas family returned to their home Thursday that is now a pile of ash and smoke.

The Coffee City Fire Department rushed to the 7000 block of Forest Hill Drive at the Briarwood Bay Mobile Estates in Frankston Thursday just after noon. But, they were too late. The mobile home was a total loss.

There was no one home at the time of the fire.

The owners aren't sure how the blaze started, though they believe an electrical appliance may have sparked and caught fire.
