Owners of Kingsville Home that Burned Down in Need of Clothes

KINGSVILLE (Kiii News) -

The owners of a home that was destroyed in a devastating fire in Kingsville on Wednesday are starting to pick up where they left off.

The fire broke out around 3 p.m. Wednesday, at the home of Les Dragon, principal of Santa Gertrudis Academy. The home was a complete loss. Fortunately, no one was home at the time of the fire, though a pet cat was lost in the blaze, and a dog is still missing.

It took crews about two and a half hours to get the fire fully under control.

The family did have insurance, and they said they intend to rebuild. One thing the family is in desperate need of right now is clothes. If you would like to donate, you can drop off clothes at Santa Gertrudis Academy.
