Longview Fire Extinguishes Fire Inside Home (No Pics or Video) - 02/02/19

Longview Fire Department responded to a working fire inside a small residential home in the 2800 block of Field Street in Longview. The incident happened about 10am on February 2nd, 2019. When fire crews arrived they found black smoke coming from a door on the side of the house. One occupant was standing outside and said that no one was inside the home. 

Fire crews stretched an attack line and made entry, extinguishing the fire. No Firefighters were injured. The fire was fully extinguished in about 10 minutes. Crews spent another 45 minutes overhauling the fire area and evacuating smoke from the residence. 

Due to heat and smoke damage, the house is not habitable, and Red Cross sent representatives to help the displaced family. A mother, along with her two teenage daughters lived in the home. 

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
