Goliad officials worked to extinguish a house fire Sunday morning after a vehicle apparently struck the home, said a Goliad resident who witnessed the burning structure.
The resident was cleaning her business after it closed and went to throw out the trash when she heard sirens, smelled smoke and saw a glow from the fire. She turned on a police scanner app on her phone and heard chatter about the wreck between 2:30 and 3 a.m. Sunday.
She drove to the scene and saw police, ambulances, fire trucks and firefighters who were trying to extinguish the flames burning the home in the 200 block of Church Street.
"You could see where he was driving down the street. It looked like he probably just passed out," the resident said. "You could see where he went … through this guy's yard until he hit the pillar ... when he struck the house."
She said a silver Chevrolet pickup was involved.
A man who lived in the house was about to go to bed when the wreck occurred, the witness said. She added she thought the man was not injured.
The Goliad County Sheriff's Office did not respond to multiple phone calls for information about the crash.
