Two vacant mobile homes were destroyed by fire Wednesday afternoon on FM 914 near the intersection of FM 847.

The fire started near private road 1199 and spread through tall, thick grass.

The homes were fully engulfed when Erath County volunteer fire fighters arrived.

Erath County resident Mark Flowers reported the incident to emergency dispatchers and tried extinguishing the fire before it spread.

"I tried to extinguish the fire before it spread, but the wind carried the flames quickly," Flowers said. "Both of those homes were empty, but apparently very flammable."

Fire fighters extinguished the blaze at around 4:15 p.m.

The cause of the fire is unknown and no injuries were reported.
