Neches home destroyed in Thursday morning fire

ANDERSON CO., March 6, 2014— A Neches home was destroyed in a fire this morning, according to Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office received a call at approximately 10:54 a.m., concerning a structure fire in the 300 block of Anderson County Road 4441. Sheriff’s Deputy Wes Dean responded, as did Neches, Montalba, and Elmwood Volunteer Fire Departments.

“The house is a loss,” said Sheriff Taylor. “From what I understand, there’s four or five people who lived in that house, who are without a home now, and that’s a tragic thing.”

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
