Family loses everything in early morning fire

KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas family has lost everything in an early morning fire.

Along the 500 block of Rabbit Creek Drive, neighbors say they woke up to a loud bang about 6 a.m. When they ran out to check what caused the noise, they saw their neighbor's home on fire.

The home owner was able to escape with minor burns, but fire crews were unable to douse the blaze before it destroyed the home.

Residents had lived there more than 20-years, but did not not have insurance.
