A Smith County family loses almost everything in a fire this afternoon while the firefighters trying to save it battle Monday's dangerous heat.
The fire broke out at a mobile home on Lavender Road in the north part of the county around noon Monday.
The fire marshal says a fifteen year old was watching her two siblings when she spotted flames in the back of the house near the dryer.
Luckily, they acted quickly and escaped.
Three volunteer fire departments and Tyler Fire also responded quickly, but much of the mobile home was already destroyed. However, they were able to keep the fire from spreading to the woods nearby and another home next door.
