Blaze rips through mobile home


Firefighters were called to 313 County Road 4869 near Briar just before midnight Saturday as a blaze devoured a mobile home.

Boyd Firefighter Mason Del Castillo, who is also a shift supervisor, said the house was fully involved when the first crew arrived.

Initial reports on the police scanner indicated there might have been a small explosion, but Del Castillo said that wasn’t true.

“There was some popping when we got here … it could have been leftover fireworks or maybe ammunition,” he said. “But there was no actual explosion.”

Jeff Doughty with the Wise County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.  In addition to Boyd, several other departments were also on scene, as well as Wise County EMS and a sheriff’s deputy.

The homeowner was not at the property when the fire started. More information will be posted as it’s available.
