No injuries

This mobile home in the 1500 block of San Antonio St. was destroyed by fire late Sunday, March 21. Rockport Volunteer Fire Department Chief Matthew Grimes said the home was occupied, but everyone escaped without injuries. “They said they don’t know how the fire started,” said Grimes. Firefighters from the Rockport, Fulton and Lamar VFDs were paged shortly before midnight. They spent extra time at the scene due to the nature of the structure, to ensure all the flames were out. “The floor was burned out, so it took extra time to safely get inside and put out the flames in corners, etc.,” said Grimes.
