Update: Fire destroys home north of Gladewater

GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) - Fire destroyed an East Texas home this afternoon.

The Gladewater Fire Department responded to a call just after 1PM at a home on North Point pPeasant Road just north of Gladewater.

The Gladewater Fire Department tells KLTV 7 that when they arrived, the back of the home was spewing flames.

The fire also caused the roof of the home to cave in, but no one was hurt.

"We arrived here with a tanker and whatever water we had on board, and started an attack with our two men," said Gladewater FD Capt. Richard Fesler. "The longer we were here, the more departments showed up. The response was a little bit slow due to the fact that other departments were tied up with another fire in the area."

The house is a total loss, but the homeowners do have insurance.
