Fire Destroys Tankers In Elderville

A tree touching a power line is to blame for an afternoon blaze in Gregg County. Fire crews were called around 12:00 p.m. to a blaze at FM 349 and Highway 322 near East Texas Regional Airport. The fire consumed around three acres and damaged numerous aluminum tankers at a nearby trucking company.

Units from Elderville-Lakeport Volunteer Fire Department doused the flames. The blaze was contained before it could spread to a nearby residential area.
