Firefighters Respond To Home in UP After Sunday Storms

A fire at a home in the 3200 block of Southwestern was quickly extinguished Sunday afternoon after a storm blew through the area. 

City officials say firefighters arrived at the home around 3:30 p.m.; crews saw smoke visible from the roof and the flames were quickly extinguished with the help of Dallas Fire-Rescue.

The fire was contained to the attic of the home, and no one was injured. 

The cause remains under investigation, and we’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
