Fires Under Investigation

Nacogdoches fire investigators suspect arson may have caused an overnight house fire.   Wednesday morning fire investigators began looking at all the charred remains of the wood frame house on Ritchie Street. They hope to find some kind of evidence that could lead them to the cause of the fire. The people who lived in the home are being interviewed as well.

Another fire is now under investigation. This one happened Wednesday afternoon at Frank Street off the Old Lufkin Road. The fire was quickly put under control by Nacogdoches firefighters and South Nacogdoches volunteer firefighters. A travel trailer , shop and storage area were totally destroyed by the blaze. The initial call indicated someone could have been trapped inside, but luckily everyone was outside and safe. No cause has been determined, but the owner fears it could have been caused by an electrical hookup.
