Crews in Carrollton responded Thursday morning to a report of smoke pouring from the attic of a home in the 1000 block of Ruby Street.  When firefighters arrived on scene they reported finding the house fully engulfed in flames, according to scanner traffic.  All of the occupants made it out safely.

According to Sensenich, a sheriff’s deputy was driving past the residence shortly after 7:00 a.m. and saw the smoke.  The officer then woke up those inside.  “They didn’t know their house was on fire.  We’re still investigating.  This building has been on fire before and it has about three ceilings in it from where they patched it from the previous fires,” Sensenich said.

A KMZU reporter on scene said the home appears to be a total loss and one of the homeowner’s pet may have perished.  The official cause and estimated damage could be released late in the day on Thursday.
