Elderly couple escapes house fire in Silsbee

Posted: Updated:
An elderly couple and their pets escape a house fire in Silsbee.

When firefighters arrived at the home in the 1800 block of Highway 327 Saturday afternoon, the structure was fully engulfed. The couple was home at the time and was able to get out of the burning house without suffering any injuries. A firefighter was treated on scene for heat exhaustion.

A portion of Highway 327 was shut down for a short period of time until the blaze was brought under control.
Investigators believe an electrical short in the garage caused the fire.
