Fire Destroys Elderville Home

An East Texas home is destroyed by fire off Pleascocke road south of Highway 149 in Elderville in Gregg County.

The Gregg County fire marshal's office says they're not sure what caused the frame house to go up in flames early this morning. They say the homeowner, Trinis Ingram, awoke to the blaze and called emergency crews. She escaped without injury.
