Lumberton Police Chief Danny Sullins tells KFDM News the fire appears to have originated in a shed behind a mobile home and then spread to the home on Lumberton Drive at North Caywood. The mobile home is a total loss.
The homeowner was able to get out safely. The fire killed a cat.
The fire was reported shortly after 10 a.m. One fireman suffered burns to his shoulder. Dispatchers called for an ambulance and they were preparing to call for a medical helicopter but the fireman's injuries aren't life threatening and the firefighter remained on the scene to help battle the flames.
The dry, windy conditions made it tough for firefighters. Winds are gusting to near 20 mph and humidity is below 30%. There is a wind advisory for Southeast Texas until 3 p.m. Tuesday, meaning winds between 20-30 miles per hour are possible.
