Cause of House Fire Believed Accidental
The exact cause of a house fire is still unknown, but the Brownsville Fire Marshal's Office is leaning towards it being accidental.
Around 9 PM Tuesday evening, a fire had ignited in a closet of one of the bedrooms at a home located near Ringgold street. A mother and her children, who were inside the home, attempted to put out the fire with water but were unsuccessful. The fire quickly spread through the bedroom but a metal door leading into the bedroom kept the flames from spreading to the rest of the home. There were no injuries and an investigation into the cause continues.
