A family of four lost their home in a fire Thursday morning.
At 10:09 a.m. June 1, first responders were dispatched to a structure fire at the 2000 block of Trailride Ln., approximately four miles outside of Navasota. When Navasota Fire Department arrived at 10:18 a.m. the doublewide mobile home was engulfed in flames and partially collapsed.
Several fire departments including White Hall and Plantersville-Stoneham VFD’s battled the fire pulling sheets of tin roofing and debris away from the structure to extinguish hot spots. By 11:49 a.m. the fire was completely extinguished.
Navasota Fire Chief Jason Katkoski said the fire originated in the center of the home near the living room area however the cause of the fire has not been determined.
The community stepped-in to help the family who lost everything in the fire, left only with the clothes they were wearing. The family was not home when the fire began, and no injuries were sustained.
While Navasota Fire Department was onscene, South Brazos County Fire Department manned Navasota Fire Station and responded to additional calls until NFD could return to service. Grimes County Sheriff’s Office and Grimes County Constables also responded to the fire.
