San Antonio — Fire Destroys Home on Lakeloma Road

Posted on Sunday, September 15th, 2019 at 9:33 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 15, 2019, a home was considered a total loss after a fire broke out in the Southeast Side of San Antonio, Texas.

According to initial reports, the fire broke out at a house located in 2700 Lakeloma Road. The family of four ran from the flames dressed in their pajamas and made it out without any injury.

By the time the fire crews arrived, the flames had flared up to the roof throughout the entire home. Firefighters had to tackle the fire from all angles, including aerial spraying to make sure the flames didn’t spread to nearby homes.

SAFD Captain Brandon Schultz said that the home will more than likely be a total loss.

The fire still remains under investigation.

It is great to hear that no one was injured in this fire accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Fire accidents like this are alarmingly common in the United States. Statistics show that in 2017, there were about 1,319,500 fire accidents that occurred in the country, and from that number, 3,400 people died and 14,670 were injured. It has also been noted that in terms of gender, more men die and get injured in fires than women, while in terms of race, African American males and American Indian males have the highest death rates per million population.

Moreover, in 2016, there were three states that had the most number of fire deaths, and these states were California, Texas, and Georgia.

Some of the common causes of fire for both residential buildings and non-residential buildings are cooking, unintentional/careless, intentional, and electric malfunction.

Fires can be incredibly appalling in all aspects for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers out there who specialize in accidents like this. So, if you are a victim of a fire accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help. Fire accident lawyers will be more than willing to help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Posted on Tuesday, August 13th, 2019 at 8:03 pm by Williams Hart   

Just after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, a young girl was killed in a house fire that occurred in Waco, Texas.

According to initial reports, the fire erupted in a house located in the 2800 block of Burnett Avenue. When firefighters arrived at the scene, they were told that there was a child trapped inside. Because heavy flames and smoke were emanating from the front portion of the house, firefighters had to cut a hole in the roof to get the heat and smoke away from the trapped child.

The child was eventually found and brought to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, but she was later pronounced dead.

The girl’s father was also inside the home at the time of the fire, and two firefighters suffered smoke-related injuries at the scene.

This fire still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the young girl in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate.
