Power line possibly sparked house fire

Posted: Updated:
ROWLETT, Texas -

A downed power line may have caused a house fire in Rowlett.

The fire began at a home on the corner of Magnolia Lane and Locust Street around 5 a.m. Friday.

Carolyn Doughty, who lives alone, was inside at the time. She said two men who were passing by saw the flames and woke her up.

She was able to grab family photos and her Bible and get out safely.

She didn't have a smoke alarm so she's very grateful. She believes the men saved her life.

"There were angels out there to protect me. I could be dead. I could be in the burn unit. They were guardian angels," Doughty said.

The fire department will determine the exact cause of the blaze.
