MONTGOMERY HOME SUFFERS EXTENSIVE FIRE DAMAGE
Homeowner Travis Thomas became too choked up to continue speaking on Friday, as he stood in font of the charred remains of his home explaining that three years earlier, the structure was remodeled to his wife’s specifications, making it their “dream home.”
At 1:09 a.m. that morning, the couple woke to the sound of smoke detectors, which they initially mistook for a burglar alarm. They got up and the house was dark, but they saw a red glow where the attic stairs pulled down, and they knew their home was burning. The family evacuated.

The ranch-style home in the 19000 block of FM 2854 suffered extensive damage. Thomas believes the central heating unit caused the fire.

Montgomery County Fire Marshal Jimmy Williams said the fire was an excellent example of the importance of working smoke detectors.

Since the fire started in the attic, without a working smoke detector, the family might have remained asleep as their home burned, and the walls and roof could have collapsed on them, Williams said.

“We easily could have had a multiple fatality fire,” he said.

WALKER COUNTY STORM DAMAGE
Just after dark Friday, intense rains hit Montgomery County and surrounding areas. Reports of torrential rains and hail came from multiple locations. The Huntsville State Park area was the hardest hit. The asphalt roadways were green, covered with leaves and pine needles stripped from the trees by pea-size to grapefruit size hail.

Shannon Davis, who lives east of the park and works at BawMaw’s Cake Shop in Conroe, bought a new car on Christmas Eve. Still, with paper tags, hailstones the size of baseballs destroyed her perfect car.

The patrol cars of two DPS Troopers in the area also sustained heavy hail damage. New Waverly Fire Departments Engine 73 at the Phelps Station was seriously damaged by the large and plentiful hail as well, and maybe a total loss. As of this writing, the department is awaiting a claims adjuster’s arrival to assess the damage.

Several New Waverly and Willis Area firefighters’ vehicles suffered extensive damage, along with many of their homes.

Around 2:45 a.m. Saturday, another wave of the storm arrived, causing extensive hail damage along Calvary Road.

Plum Grove Fire Department has been running calls for rescues most of the evening. This after over 6-inches of rain flooded the community. Chief Brandon Frazier with the Plum Grove Fire Department said they had multiple calls with cars in water to the roof. One big issue they had was vehicles on the narrow Plum Grove Road not yielding to responding emergency vehicles and once on the scene drivers ignored the scene spraying water and causing wakes through the rescue scenes. He said the wakes were forcing doors on flooded vehicles back closed as they were working the vehicles. FM 1010 had water over it as dis Plum Grove Road which was passable after 9 pm just to large vehicles. One resident of 25-years who flooded in Harvey said he has it and moving out.
