W.F. Resident Injured After House Catches Fire Near SAFB

A house near Sheppard Air Force Base goes up in flames Wednesday night and now is a total loss.

Sheppard Air Force Base officials said one person was taken to the hospital after the fire destroyed a home in the Freedom Estates military housing area, near Sheppard Air Force Base.

Firefighters from Sheppard AFB and Wichita Falls responded shortly before 6 p.m. and in spite of high winds contained the fire before it could spread to neighboring structures.

The home was occupied by an Air Force family assigned to the base; one family member was transported to United Regional Medical Center for smoke inhalation.

Base officials and neighbors are assisting the family and an investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
