W.F. House Engulfed In Early Morning Fire

Just after 4 a.m. Monday, a house, across the street from Zundy Junior High in Wichita Falls, was completely engulfed in flames.

Our crew was on the scene on the 1600 block of Polk St. as firefighters worked to put out the blaze. They managed to extinguish the flames but the house was destroyed.

Several streets near the home were blocked off while crews worked the scene.

We spoke with Assistant Marshal Antoinette Hastings about what might have caused the fire. Hastings said the cause was undetermined because they have no witnesses. She did say, it looked like squatters were staying in the house.

The owner of the home is unknown.
