Tarkington firefighters responded to a house fire Sunday night on SH 321 near the CR 2242 intersection to find a full-engulfed mobile home. The house was completely destroyed.

The home was an empty structure that had not occupied for quite some time, according to Tarkington Fire Chief Paul Gregory.

The cause of the fire is unknown. When asked if electrical problems might have sparked a blaze, Gregory said it is uncertain if power was connected to the home.

“The fire is still under investigation,” Gregory said.
