House Goes Up In Flames Before Fire Department Can Save It

An East Texas house goes up in flames before the fire department can get there to save it. It happened just off of Highway 175, in the town of Cuney.  That's between Frankston and Jacksonville. Two people lived in the house and both got out safely. Firefighters say a fire in the fireplace got out of control. Neighbors say it only took ten minutes for the house to be fully engulfed. Firefighters say it was an older house, and by the time they arrived there was nothing they could do to save it.
