OAK HILL, Texas (KXAN) — Crews from the Oak Hill Fire Department are busy Thursday morning trying to control a fire at a mobile home.
Fire crews say the fire broke out around 1:45 a.m. at 8705 High Valley Road. That’s near the intersection of FM 1826 and Slaughter Lane.
Oak Hill Fire Chief Jeffrey Wittig told KXAN crews do not know what caused the fire. Once the cause is determined, we will update this story.
Crews had to shut down FM 1826 for a time to get their gear to a nearby hydrant. “In this particular area, there just doesn’t happen to be any fire hydrants. So our closest hydrant is quite a distance away and across a major street,” Wittig said.
Everyone inside the mobile home made it out. The fire started in the back of the structure and did not spread to nearby homes.
