Family Loses Home In Fire

A housefire in Henderson County has left an East Texas family without a home.  It happened around 10 p.m. Friday at a home on Persimmon Lane, just North of Chandler.

Smoke can still be seen rising from the home Linda McCullars and Gary Gabbard shared for more than two years.  The couple arrived home shortly before 11 p.m. to find their home completely burned by fire.

Despite losing everything they own, the couple is staying positive.

"I'm just glad that we weren't sleeping in the bedroom and me and my husband are still alive," said Linda McCullars.

The couple is not sure what caused the blaze.  If you would like to help you can make a donation to "Teleco Credit Union in Tyler.
