Investigators Looking for Ignition Source of Sunday Evening Fire

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Investigators are still trying to figure out the cause of a fire that destroyed a home in the 400 block of Louisiana Avenue Saturday evening.

3News was the first on the scene as smoke from the blaze was visible for miles. Thankfully, no one was inside of the home when the fire started, and on Monday, investigators were back out there looking for a source of the fire.

"Once we can determine a point or area of origin, we try to narrow it down, looking through the burning patterns to see if we can get to the point and find the heat source," said Captain James Brown of the Corpus Christi Fire Department.

Investigators did make a sad discovery while searching through the rubble Monday -- the remains of one of the family's dogs.

Fire investigators believe the fire started somewhere near the back of the home.
