NOLANVILLE, Texas (KWTX) An early-morning house fire Monday in Nolanville displaced a father and his young daughter.
The residents weren’t home when the fire broke out.
Central Bell Fire and Rescue responded to the fire at around 7:30 a.m. Monday in the 12000 block of FM 4349.
The home was destroyed, firefighters said.
The owner of the home recently installed new roof that trapped heat and made the blaze difficult to put out, firefighters said.
There were also issues with a lack of fire hydrants in the area, they said.
One Sparta Fire Department volunteer was treated for smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Firefighters encourage residents to call 911 if they see any smoke because dry conditions cause fires to spread easily.
Bell County is currently under a burn ban until next Monday.
Anyone interested in assisting the displaced family may call WCID 3 in Nolanville at (254) 698-6885.
