Fire destroys home near Eagle Mountain Lake


Local firefighters were called to help at a house fire in the 9200 block of West Fork Trail near Eagle Mountain Lake on Tuesday. A lack of nearby fire hydrants made fighting a three-alarm house fire difficult. Assistance was needed by fire departments from Fort Worth, Eagle Mountain, Aledo, Boyd, Saginaw, Lake Worth, Azle, Sansom Park, White Settlement, Dido, River Oaks, Haslet and Crowley. The house was a total loss and no cause has been determined. No one was home at the time.
