WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A family's home was heavily damaged after it caught fire.

The Wichita Falls Fire Department was dispatched just after 8 p.m Wednesday night after flames were seen shooting out of the top of a home in the 4800 block Trinidad Drive.

Firefighters said it took them between 20 and 25 minutes to put out the fire, which they say began in the attic.
