No injuries in early morning house fire

Killeen Fire Department puts out house fire

Flames broke out on Carly Drive, home is destroyed

KILLEEN, Texas (August 24, 2023) – The Killeen Fire Department put out a house fire in the 500 block of Carly Drive just before 2:30a.m. The fire was extinguished in about 30 minutes and no one was injured. 


Twenty-eight personnel responded to the scene of the one-story, single-family home, including three fire engine trucks, two tower ladder trucks, one heavy rescue vehicle, one ambulance, two Battalion Chiefs, two EMS Supervisors and one engine company.


A resident in the home called in the fire and, upon arrival, crews saw heavy fire coming from the attached garage. Flames had already burned through the roof and two vehicles in the driveway. An adjacent home also had minor damage.


The homeowner confirmed all four occupants and one dog had safely evacuated the building. A resident said a second pet was inside, but after an additional search, no other pets were found inside.  


Firefighters remained on scene until about 5a.m. to extinguish small hidden areas that were still smoldering. Crews believe the fire originated somewhere in the garage space.  


The Killeen Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the incident and the cause of the fire is not yet known. The residence has been deemed uninhabitable and all occupants were displaced.


The Killeen Fire Department was assisted on scene by the Killeen Police Department and Oncor Electric.
