Neighbor uses water hose to put out a fire that threatened a home

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A neighbor's quick thinking helped save a mobile home in south Lubbock County.

A car burst into flames around 9:45 p.m. Monday outside of a home in the 18000 block of County Road 2300. Russell Bogel, who lives nearby, grabbed a water hose and kept the flames from spreading to the house. Woodrow volunteer firefighters arrived a few minutes later and put out the blaze.

"When I first got there the flames were already up pretty good in the front of it, and I noticed that the underpinning had already caught," said neighbor Russell Bogle. "So I got the water hose and took care of all that end of the house. Kept it watered down so that it wouldn't burn down that end of the house."

"By the time fire crews from Cooper and Lubbock County Sheriff's office arrived, the fire had already made its way to the back yard," said Bogel. "The fire was quickly put out and spared the home."

Bogel said, "The house is an astronomical amount, but the car you can always replace it."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

    Senate Republicans are now considering two versions of similar legislation, one that would repeal and replace, and another that would simply repeal "Obamacare" with a two-year delay for implementation to give the Senate more time to agree on a replacement.
