Fire Destroys Family's Mobile Home

An East Texas family loses everything after a devastating fire destroys their mobile home.   The fire broke out Thursday night near the town of Pritchett.   The Duncan family says they were watching TV Thursday night when they smelled something strange. They got out of the house and that's when it went up in flames. The home was destroyed, and a family pet died. 

Cindy Duncan, the homeowner, says "the house caught on fire and it burned up everything we had, we just started over. I just opened a new business and we lost everything we had," she says.

The cause of the blaze is still unknown. The Duncans did not have insurance.   If you would like to help the family, there is a tragedy fund set up at the Texas Bank and Trust in Gladewater under the name Cindy Duncan.
