Wood County, Texas (KETK) — Traffic is flowing again after early morning fires shut down Highway 80 eastbound, just outside of Mineola.
According to Mineola Fire Chief David Madsen, the fires broke out around 4:00 a.m., Friday and crews were called to the 2000 block of East Highway 80, near the East Loop 564 overpass.
A brick home, mobile home and a couple of cars were destroyed as a result of the blaze. Luckily, there were no injuries.
Chief Madsen tells KETK he is not sure what caused the fire and it is unclear whether or not state officials will investigate the incident.
