It took three volunteer fire departments to put out a blaze north of Lubbock on Saturday afternoon. Volunteer firefighters from Shallowater, New Deal, and West Carlisle battled the blaze at 6500 North Quaker around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The fire destroyed the unoccupied house, which was being remodeled at the time. Shallowater Volunteer Fire Captain Gary Workman says the exact cause of the fire has not been determined. The State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the blaze.
