Outdoor cooking sparks Longview blaze

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- Officials think a backyard barbeque may be to blame for a fire in the 200 block of Solti street around 7 p.m. Sunday.

By the time fire crews arrived the fire had spread into the attic of the home and flames were shooting through the roof.

Crews were able to douse the blaze in around 20 minutes, but not before it had burned a substantial amount of the home.

Investigators say an outdoor cooker close to the home apparently provided the spark for the fire.
