Arriving on scene, firefighters found a brick home fully engulfed by flames, and quickly called for assistance from Lowry Crossing, Branch and Farmersville and Melissa Fire Departments. The McKinney Fire Department was also later called in to assist.

Firefighters were told on scene that everyone was out of the house and the homeowner was located. The homeowner remains a person of interest, according to information released by the police department.

During the fire, a Melissa firefighter was transported for minor injuries sustained while fighting the fire. Conditions and the identity of the firefighter are unknown at presstime.

The house is a complete loss.
