SMITH COUNTY, Texas (KLTV) – Smith County Fire Marshal Jay Brooks confirmed that several family members died in the fire on Monday.
Brooks said one adult and three children died in a fire at a home on Devon Drive near US Highway 271 in the Starville area.
“All we have is the mother of the three children in the house,” Brooks said.
He said a man was taken to hospital by EMS.
He said the crew arrived and tried to check and see if anyone else was in the house. But the fire was too intense and they had to get back out.
