This was the scene moments ago (Approximately 4:30 PM on Thursday, March 9th 2017) on Atkinson Drive in Lufkin. If you live in this area, judging by the number of power company trucks, you might have lost power for a short time.
Yesterday afternoon, local news sources began reporting a serious fire in Houston's Montrose neighborhood. The fire involved an apartment complex that was under construction, and was another opportunity for the Houston Fire Department to amaze onlookers.
A Lufkin landmark, Fullers Buffet, caught fire and burned today (Feb. 18th). Fullers Buffet had been a Lufkin institution for many years, serving homestyle food to East Texans. The fire began sometime after 2pm when the restaurant had closed for the day.
