A fire raced through a mobile home early Monday morning near Thurber, displacing a family and destroying almost all of their belongings, said Chris Gable, fire services coordinator for the Erath County Volunteer Fire Rescue.
The call came in shortly before 1 a.m. reporting that a mobile home located on Private Road 1037 off Interstate 20 was on fire. ECVFR responded with two trucks and nine personnel along with the Gordon Volunteer Fire Department.
Gable said the residents were awakened by the smell of smoke, but managed to escape the house unharmed.
“The house and most of its contents where a total loss,” Gable said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
