No one was injured Monday after a Sherman home caught fire.
Sherman Fire-Rescue Capt. Jerry Fuller said crews were dispatched to the home in 800 block of East King Street at approximately 4:39 p.m. where they found the single residence home emitting thick black smoke and flames. The fire drew at least five of the department’s engines and crews were able to extinguish the blaze within roughly 45 minutes of arriving on the scene.
“The house was vacant and fully involved as soon as we got here,” Fuller said. “You could see the smoke and the heat from the stations and on the other side of town.”
Fuller said crews first extinguished flames from the outside and then moved inside the residence where they were able to douse the remaining flames. Sherman Police also responded to the scene and blocked off multiple streets near the home as the fire was brought under control.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
