FERRIS — Two residents lost their home after a fire broke out on Sunday night. First responders were dispatched at 10:15 a.m. the 300 block of Magellan Circle in Ferris.
“It was fully involved when we got there. So it had a good head start. Of course, we had the high winds, and that did not help,” Ferris Fire Chief Tom Leverentz said. “The occupants were at home. The two residents fled the structure and were uninjured. “
Leverentz said the doublewide mobile home was about 2,500 square feet and contained a garage. The home, along with two vehicles, is considered to be a total loss. Firefighters brought the fire under control at about midnight.
Ovilla, Red Oak, Palmer, Lancaster and Wilmer Fire Departments provided assistance on the call and emergency personnel working the scene reported no injuries.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by Ellis County Fire Marshal. Units cleared the scene and returned to the station at about 3 a.m. on Monday.
