Just after 9:15 p.m. Monday night, as the wind whipped and temperatures dropped into the low 30s, a home in the 1100 block of Seneca Place in southern Lewisville was heavily damaged by a two-alarm house fire.
From the outside, the home appeared to have damage to the roof and second floor, but radio traffic indicated flames at the front door and coming from a bedroom window. A neighbor had called 911 and said that the homeowner was not home.
Just after the fire was extinguished, Battalion Chief Jerry Wells said he didn’t have any information about what started the fire. “We had a little fire up there at the front door,” Wells said.
“They went in there, extinguished that, searched the house and found nobody home.”
Wells said there were no injuries. The homeowner was onsite as firefighters wrapped up, and did not wish to speak.
