LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A Lubbock family of four is homeless after a fire ripped through their home Thursday afternoon.
It happened in the 2600 block of County Road 7670.
Woodrow and Wolfforth Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the call and worked to put out the blaze. Fire crews say the home was actually two mobile homes put together under one roof which made it difficult for them to reach the flames.
Smoke billowed from the roof and flames could be seen for miles. The American Red Cross is assisting the Johnson family.
The family says they do have some insurance to help them pick up the pieces.
An assistance fund will be set up at Alliance Federal Credit Union.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
