Still No Cause In Mineola House Fire

The official cause is still unknown for a fire that destroyed an east Texas home.

Several fire departments responded shortly before 11:30 last night on Highway 80 east of Mineola. The woman who lived inside said she was not at home at the time and her 2 dogs were able to escape.

She also told firefighters that the dryer was running when she left her home.

A cause will not be known until her insurance company completes their investigation.
