Fire Destroys Longview Home

In Longview this morning fire destroyed a house at 1310 Centenary.

Investigators believe the blaze was accidental and started in a back room. The exact cause remains under investigation.

When the call first went out authorities were afraid the homeowner was trapped inside because her car was parked in the drive-way. A police officer kicked in the front door and firefighters searched but luckily she was not at home.
