Fire crews respond to blaze near Lake Palestine

Posted: Updated:

Fire crews are at the scene of a fire at the Village Resort on Spring Creek Road on Lake Palestine.

Authorities say one of the units near the water park was more than 40 percent involved when crews arrived.

No one was home when the fire broke out.

Neighbors say they smelled smoke and ran outside of their condo to find the porch next to them on fire.

Fire officials say visitors saw someone grilling on the porch about an hour before the fire started. Smith County Fire Marshals are investigating if coal ashes may have started the fire as part of their initial investigation.

Authorities are interviewing others who may have seen the fire break out.

We have a crew on the scene and will provide updates as soon as they are available.
