LAKEPORT, TEXAS (KYTX) A family of six loses their home to an overnight fire. It happened around 4:00 Sunday morning in Lakeport.   The parents and two children were home when the fire started. The family says the fire woke up the two children who then ran and got their parents. The home was destroyed, but everyone escaped.

"There are so many memories. My kids grew up here. But it's just a home, I mean it's just a house. Home is where my family is," says homeowner Tamara Garrett. 

No one was hurt. The cause is still being investigated but it's believed to be an electrical problem. The Red Cross is helping.

The Elderville volunteer fire department and Longview fire extinguished the fire.
