Longview Home Destroyed In A Fire

A fire burns down a Longview home. It happened on English Lane near Highway 259 at around 9:45 a.m. Three, elderly, mentally-challenged women lived there with their care-taker, Claudette Williams. No one was home at the time of the fire.

"We left this morning at 8:30 going to the activity center, so when the house caught fire, no one was in the house so I thank the lord for that. No on was there," said Williams, the homeowner. Williams says the fire destroyed everything. She plans to stay with a relative temporarily. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
