Cherokee County home damaged by fire


Fire crews responded to the scene of a structure fire in northern Cherokee County.

Troup, Whitehouse, Flint-Gresham, Bullard, North Cherokee and Lake Palestine-East Fire Departments were all called out to the blaze reported in the 1,000 block of County Road 3805 off of FM 2493 near Mt. Selman, on Friday morning.

Authorities say a woman smelled smoke coming from the attic. But fire officials say the blaze started in a brick area between the ceiling and the fireplace, most likely from a fire in the fireplace Thursday night.

The woman and two kids were the only ones home at the time.

No injuries have been reported.
