Motorist Helps Minimize Longview Fire

A house fire in Longview was limited to minimal damage today, thanks to the quick thinking of a good Samaritan. It happened around 11:00 a.m. at a home in the 600 block of North Eastman Rd. 

A passing motorist saw the back building of the home on fire. She headed to the fire department a few blocks away to alert them. Crews were immediately on the scene, and were able to put the blaze out before it got into the main structure.

The residents' belongings were saved from what fire investigators say could have been a very big fire.  Investigators believe an electrical short may have caused the fire. No one was injured.
