Two challenges make overnight fire difficult to fight

Posted: Updated:
ELLIS COUNTY, Texas -

A fire destroyed a home near Waxahachie early Friday morning.

When firefighters arrived at the home in the 1200 block of Dixie Lane it was fully engulfed. Besides having to deal with strong winds, they also had to overcome the fact that there was not a fire hydrant near the house. Tankers had to shuttle water to the scene.

One man was at home at the time but got out safely. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
