Fire burns vacant home
A vacant home with no utility service burned.
Investigators say it's clear someone deliberately set fire to the home in the 1400 block of Pipkin near Avenue A in south Beaumont.
The fire began in a bedroom. Flames were coming out of a window of the home when firefighters first pulled up at about 9 a.m.
They quickly put out the fire and confined it to the bedroom.
