Fire Destroys Lakeport Home

An East Texas woman loses everything she owns in an early- morning house fire in Lakeport this morning.   It happened just after 9:00 a.m. at a home in the 1500 block of Jerry Lucy Rd. That's near the East Texas Regional Airport. Crews from three area fire departments arrived to find the home ablaze. Firefighters quickly doused the flames. The female homeowner was able to get out of the house unharmed, but firefighters say the structure and everything in it was a total loss.

Although the blaze was quickly handled, firefighters say homes in rural areas present a tough challenge, like a water source.  The cause is still being investigated.  For information on how to help the homeowner, you can call pleasant Green Baptist Church in Longview.
