SPICEWOOD, Texas - Investigators are currently looking into what sparked a fire that partially burned a multi-story Spicewood home. Neighbors were able to alert the homeowners who were away at the time.
The owners saw flames on their security camera and called 911, prompting the response of several fire departments.
“The fire was reported by the neighbors, we responded with a first alarm defensively given the magnitude of the fire we transitioned to an offensive attack,” said Justin O’Baugh with the Pedernales Fire Department.
PFD responded to the structure fire on Sailboat Pass near the Barton Creek Lakeside Country Club and crews from around the Lake Travis area spent Friday, battling the fire. “The fire preceded to get into so many crawl spaces that we transitioned to a defensive attack,” said O’Baugh.
Neighbors first reported the flames at around 10:30 in the morning. “The homeowners were not home but they are aware of what’s been going on their neighbors have been in contact with them and made them aware,” said O’Baugh.
The damage was enough to collapse part of the home. No one was injured. “It’s extensive for sure we haven’t been able to do an investigation on the inside at this point so we really can’t say for sure,” said O’Baugh.
