Fire And Wind Destroy Longview Home

High winds are being blamed for a fire that got out of control and destroyed a Longview home today. Just before noon, fire crews responded to a home on Electra Street where a fire had jumped into the attic. The homeowners had left the residence just minutes before the blaze started.

Crews tried desperately to knock down the flames, but say high winds fanned the blaze causing it to spread and catch the entire roof on fire. No one was injured in the blaze, and the cause remains under investigation.
