GRAFORD – Reports indicate firefighters from PK East and Graford agencies responded to a structure fire Monday evening in the 100 block of Mulberry Drive.

According to Palo Pinto County Fire Marshal Buddy Harwell, a neighbor noticed the fire shortly before 6:30 p.m.

The blaze destroyed about 70 percent of the home but did not damage any other structures, he said.

Harwell described the home as a small, older residence near PK Lake, adding the property was reportedly not covered by fire insurance.
