House goes up in flames in south Abilene; Neighboring houses also spark up


ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Abilene firefighters battled a massive house fire on the city’s south side early Wednesday afternoon.

The fire, because of strong winds, spread quickly to two neighboring homes.

Firefighters were first called to the home in the 3900 block of Chris Drive at about 12:30 p.m. The home was located near Wylie West Junior High School.

The home became fully engulfed and the wind, according to Abilene Fire Chief Cande Flores, pushed the fire to a neighboring home.

A total of two additional homes were affected by the fire.

The home that originally caught fire was deemed a total loss.

No injuries were reported but officials said several animals died in the first home. No one was at the first home when the fire sparked, officials said.

A cause of the fire was not immediately released.
