Fire damages East Texas home, destroys garage


An East Texas home was heavily damaged in a massive fire Thursday.

The fire happened at about 10:30 a.m. at a residence in the 2300 block of Bell Street in Texarkana, Texas. Investigators say the fire started in the garage.

The homeowner, William Matlock, says his grandson was in the garage working on a fuel pump for an automobile before the fire started.

The blaze completely destroyed the garage along with at least four vehicles and heavily damaged part of the house. The heat from the fire also melted the vinyl siding on the house next door.

No one was injured in the blaze. Firefighters have not yet determined the cause of the fire.
