A house was destroyed by fire Tuesday afternoon in a blaze of unknown origin that appeared to have spread from an adjacent shed.
The house on Klopesteck Road was fully engulfed around 5 p.m.
“The cause remains unknown and the residence was not insured,” said Sealy Fire Chief Kenny Willingham.
There were no injuries reported. Willingham said the American Red Cross was requested to assist the family.
Sealy, San Felipe, Bellville, Wallis, and Eagle Lake fire departments responded, providing personnel and water supply. Austin County EMS and the Austin County Sheriff’s Officer supported operations on scene.
