Several fire departments responded to a house fire that destroyed a home Tuesday morning in rural Victoria County.
Located in the 2200 block Fordtran Road near Hensley Road, the one-story home caught fire about 10:40 a.m., said Victoria County Fire Marshall Richard Castillo.
“Nobody was home, so nobody was injured,” he said. “The house is going to be a total loss.”
The home was fully ingulfed in flames when emergency response arrived. Firefighters were still working to extinguish the fire in the early afternoon.
The cause of the fire was not immediately known and is under investigation, Castillo said.
Agencies that responded included the Victoria County Fire Department, Victoria Fire Department, Fordtran Volunteer Fire Department, Nursery Volunteer Fire Department and Inez Volunteer Fire Department.
