Lufkin fire marshals are still investigating a fire that occurred in the 400 block of Packer Street early Monday morning.

City Fire Marshal Steve McCool said Lufkin firefighters were called out to a house fire at approximately 5:11 a.m. Although someone lives in the home, no one was in the residence when the fire started.

There were no utilities - water, gas, or electricity - on at the house when the fire started, McCool said. The cause of the fire is still unknown at this time, and McCool said there were some “red flags.”

The fire is still under investigation.
