Stove Suspected Ignition Point For Devastating Fire

Investigators believe they know the cause of a fire in Smith County on Mother's Day afternoon.

The fire started around 3:30 p.m. at the home on County Road 1252.  That's close to Highway 271 and Interstate 20 in northeastern Smith County.

The investigator on scene Monday tells KLTV 7 she believes the stove was left on, as a skillet there seems to be the source of the fire.  None of the two adults and three children who live there were home at the time.

No one was hurt fighting the fire.
