Flames have destroyed a large 2-story home in the Bevilport Community about 150 yards from the Angelina River. The early Wednesday afternoon blaze was reported shortly after 1:00 at the far west end of Farm to Market Road 2799.

Firefighters from Beech Grove, Angelina River, Jasper, and Rayburn all worked together for about an hour before bringing the flames under control.

No injuries were reported.

Beech Grove Fire Chief Jamie Gunter said that he didn’t immediately know what may have caused the fire, but he did say that the home was owned by Regina Ealand and was occupied by John Dalton.
