UPDATED: Fire destroyed Flower Mound home Friday at noon
The family dog was saved.
FLOWER MOUND A four-alarm house in the 3000 block of High Point Road, located in the River Oaks subdivision in west Flower Mound, was destroyed by a fire around noon Friday.
Flower Mound fire Chief Eric Metzger said there were no injuries from the fire, though one firefighter was transported to Denton Regional Medical Center because of a heat-related health issue.
Metzger said firefighters responded to a call about thick smoke, and when crews arrived, the 3,800-square-foot, two-story house was significantly involved in fire.
“When we got there, the roof had begun to collapse, and we didn’t want to risk it,” Metzger said. “So we weren’t able to attack the fire from the inside.”
Metzger said it is too soon to know what caused the fire, though he said preliminary questions have already been asked, such as whether the house had recently had construction work done.
Metzger said the homeowners were not in the house at the time.
Departments from Coppell, Highland Village, Lewisville, Roanoke, and Grapevine assisted in the fire.
UPDATE: The Cross Timbers Gazette reports the family's dog, a black Lab named Amber, was saved. Read more here.
