UPSHUR COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas home is a total loss after a Friday morning fire.

According to the Pritchett Volunteer Fire Department, the fire started just after 9 a.m. at a home on Aspen Trail, just three miles southwest of Gilmer in Upshur County.

The owner of the home told an Upshur County Sheriff's Deputy Jef Rigsby that he left his home to test drive a motorcycle. Upon returning around ten minutes later, the house was engulfed in flames. He sustained no injuries.

Gilmer Fire Department and Pritchett Volunteer Fire Department are currently on scene.
