Two Bowie Homes Destroyed In Weekend Fire

A Bowie woman is recovering from one of two weekend fires that destroyed two homes.

The first fire started Saturday around 1:30 a.m. at the victim's home on Hwy. 59. Bowie Fire Chief Doug Page said the woman fell asleep on her porch and a space heater caught her blanket on fire. She was able to get away as the fire spread to the home.

The victim is in stable condition at Bowie Memorial Hospital.

Page said an electrical power-line fell, and prevented Bowie Rural firefighters from saving the house. The chief added the house next door suffered minor heat damage.

A pickup truck also was destroyed and another vehicle was damaged.  

Firefighters responded to another home fire that same day around 3:30 p.m. at the 1900 block of Lama Rd. The family who lived in the mobile home were not home at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
