Lumberton blaze consumes abandoned home

The Lumberton Fire Department spent a good portion of Monday afternoon trying to control a fire that engulfed an abandoned home off of Highway 69 and Neeley Drive.

It started around 2 p.m., and their work was complicated when some nearby propane tanks became threatened.

Officials say the house had been abandoned for years and owners had been trying to clean up the home in recent weeks.

Lumberton Fire was assisted by departments from Silsbee, Pineridge and Pinewood.
