Comanche Co._Fire destroyed a house in eastern Comanche County Thursday night. It happened just past 7pm on Southeast 90th Street, south of Highway 7. Fire officials said the homeowner came home, and when he opened the door to his laundry room, smoke poured out. Fire crews were able to put the fire out within 15 minutes, but by then the damage was done.
The Flower Mound fire chief says about 10 percent of the home was lost to the fire, and the rest was lost to smoke damage. He says an electrical wiring problem in the laundry room started the fire. The Red Cross was on hand following the fire, helping the family find a place to stay Thursday night.
