A Gladewater family of eight is without a home tonight. Their house caught on fire around noon on Thursday. It's located off County Road 3108 near Gighway 271 in Smith County. The Gladewater Fire Department says a neighbor spotted flames coming from the two-story house. By the time the fire department got to the house, it was fully engulfed. Within five minutes, the second story of the house collapsed. The family also lost a motor home and a bass boat.
