             On Monday, City of Lufkin Fire Marshal Steve McCool completed his initial investigation of house at 307 Magnolia Ave, which went up in flames Sunday evening.

             Fire Marshall Steve McCool probed the charred remains this morning trying to narrow down what may have ignited the destructive blaze.

"It's going to be a total loss,” explained Fire Marshal McCool.  “I believe we've narrowed down the area of origin to the kitchen, but we're still looking for the actual point and cause the first it ignited."

             Mitch and Lisa Norman escaped the fire in their house barefoot and with only the clothes on their backs.

The fire killed five of the couple’s nine pets.

"I don't care about anything in that house, it's just my pets,” cried Lisa Norman Monday, while watching the fire marshal from across the street.  “I'm going to put 5 crosses up for them."

             The Normans plan to erect those five wood crosses in memory of those five pets lost in the fire.
