Fire destroys Colleyville house

A fire raced through a house on Belle Mead Drive Sunday afternoon, destroying it, but no injuries were reported.

About 50 firefighters from 11 area fire departments extinguished the flames in about an hour, but the they remained on the scene for any hot spots.

The four-alarm fire was reported about 5:30 p.m. in the 7100 block of Belle Meade Drive.

For almost an hour, firefighters poured water on the burning structure and kept the flames from jumping to nearby homes. The roof had collapsed into the building.

Fire investigators believe construction material in a trash bin behind the house started the fire.

No one was at the home at the time the blaze erupted, authorities said. The 3,800-square-foot house is valued at about $435,000, according to Tarrant Appraisal District records.

Firefighters were hampered by temperatures that hovered above 100 degrees.
