At approximately midnight, Beaumont Fire Rescue units responded to a structure fire at 390 N Major. When firefighters arrived they found a garage fully involved by flames and the fire was spreading into the house. The occupants of the home were able to escape without injury before firefighters arrived.
Once the flames spread into the attic of the home, it took firefighters over an hour to control the fire. The fire caused extensive damage to the home. Firefighters were on the scene for several hours extinguishing smaller burned areas.
The fire originated in the garage but the cause of the fire has not yet been determined. Red Cross was called to assist the occupants.
