BEAUMONT, TX (News Release) - By Donna McCollum - email

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A mobile home, storing a Nacogdoches county jailer's belongings, went up in flames on Saturday.

Fire Marshal Del Birdweel said today he believes the jailer is a victim of a couple of crimes.

"Some of the rooms that were not damaged, she had noticed some items gone, out of those rooms, so it's kinda turned into a burglary and an arson," said Birdweel.

There is a person of interest in the case, but so far no arrests. The incident happened in the 2200 block of Pearl Street
