SAN LEON – Two firefighters were briefly trapped when the roof of a burning trailer home at 315 14th Street collapsed about 9:50 a.m. Saturday.
Assistant Fire Chief Scott Lyons said crews pulled the men out unscathed. They were inspected by emergency medical personnel and Lyons said they are “doing fine.”
A woman and five children who were in the home also escaped uninjured.
Lyons said the fire was likely caused by one of the children playing with a lighter in the back of the doublewide.
The home was destroyed, Lyons said.
Texas City and Dickinson assisted the San Leon Volunteer Fire Department at the scene.
