Tree Limbs & Power Lines Cause Home Fire

Wichita Falls fire crews say fallen tree limbs mixing with power lines is to blame for yesterday's blaze in the 1600 block of Garfield, where fire fighters rushed to around 2:30 PM to keep the flames from spreading.

Fire Marshal David Collins confirms the flames reached both a home and a backyard. Collins believes the home was vacant at the time, and that nearby brush and vegetation helped to spread the flames to both areas.

No injures were reported. Luckily, fire fighters had the blaze under control within 30 minutes.
