Update: no one injured in massive Smith County house fire

SMITH COUNTY, TEXAS (KLTV) -  Smith County authorities responded to a reported structure fire in the 3300 Block of FM 724, around 4:30 pm Saturday.

A neighbor tells KLTV they heard an explosion, right before the fire started.

Smith County officials say no one was injured. Our reporter on the scene was able to speak with the family who lived in the home. They were out of town, in Canton, when the fire started.

Fire Marshal Jim Seaton says when the neighbors heard the explosion, they went inside the home to make sure no one was there.
