Fire Destroys Two Lubbock Homes

On Tuesday afternoon Fire riped through two Lubbock structures, leaving 11 people homeless.

The fire started just after 2 p.m. in a shed behind the houses at 5th Street and Avenue R, but quickly spread through both structures. At the time, three adults and six children were inside one of the duplexes, but all were able to escape safely. The two residents of the second house were not home at the time.

Black smoke filled the sky as firefighters aggressively attacked the flames. Officials know the fire started in a shed, but how it was started is still unclear. "Well it just exploded in the back and it was the electricity meter and we just started getting the kids and smoke just went everywhere. Recently I lost a daughter and a son and now I don't have their pictures and that's why I feel real sad", Connie Marroquin, a fire victim said.

The American Red Cross was on the scene to assist the families with food, shelter, and clothing. The fire is under investigation.
