Fire destroys Union Grove home

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- A tragic start for an east Texas family's holiday season after losing everything in a house fire. Fire crews responded Thursday to a blaze in Union Grove on north Point Pleasant road. By the time they arrived the home was gutted, as the fire burned right through the roof.

The Rogers family, including 3 children, escaped unharmed but lost clothes, food, even just purchased Christmas presents. Fire officials say the cause remains under investigation.

A relief fund has been set up for the family. You can make donations at the Gladewater mirror newspaper at 201 south Dean street in Gladewater.
