The Fire Marshal was in town Monday to inspect the remains of yet another fire, this one in a small wooded area just south of the former nursing home on Cypress and between it and Peppy’s on Main Street.
City employee Eric Acosta was driving on Main Street Sunday about 11 p.m. and happened to notice the blaze. He and another city employee were able to put it out.
The fire appears to have been set. It is the third case of suspected arson to occur in a one block area. The other two are at the McBurnett house at 210 Cypress and the Treviño home at 211 Cypress.
