NOONDAY, TX (KLTV) - A fire destroys an East Texas couple's home Friday afternoon.

The emergency call came in to fire officials just before 12:30pm from a home located on County Road 194 in Noonday.

According to the Assistant Smith County Fire Marshall, the fire began in the home's garage. She believes the fire may be tied to some oil lamps that were being used to keep plants warm in the couple's garage. An investigation is ongoing, though.
