Authorities continue to investigate fatal Vidor fire

A man told investigators Monday that he was not at a Vidor home when a fire broke out that killed a 79-year-old woman.

The fire early Sunday morning killed 79-year-old Dorothy Hampshire at her home in the 3000 block of South Main Street in Vidor.

Her husband of more than 40 years is in intensive care. A relative told KFDM he should go to a private room in the next day or so and is then expected to be released.

A caretaker at the home was burned. She was released Monday afternoon. A 9 year old granddaughter was released from a hospital Sunday.

Detectives said they were able to find and speak with a man they could not account for just after the fire was put out. He told investigators he was not home at the time of the fire.

For now, the State Fire Marshal is calling the cause of the fire undetermined.

A relative told us the family lost everything in the fire.


All cash donations to the Hampshire family can go to Capitol One Bank account number: 3315840774 and all other donations to go to 3250 Donna St.  in Vidor, TX.
