Fish fry fire spreads to family home

FLINT, TX (KLTV) - Smith County fire crews rushed to save a burning home Friday night. The call came in shortly after 7 PM from the Pine Trail Shores Subdivision off Highway 155 near Lake Palestine.

Nothing is left of the shed where the fire started. The homeowners tell us they were frying fish there, like they normally do and were inside eating when a neighbor stopped by to tell them their shed was on fire.

The grease fire spread to a neighboring shed and eventually the home. Today, family and friends salvaged what they could from ashes. The couple tells us they are insured and plan to rebuild in the same spot.

No one was injured in the fire.
