Blaze Rips Through West Odessa Neighborhood

WEST ODESSA - Two firefighters are in the hospital and five homes are left in ashes after a huge blaze ripped through a mobile home park in West Odessa.

Two of the volunteer firefighters were sent to the hospital and are being treated for smoke inhalation. Crews on the scene tell us, the fire destroyed about five homes.

Firefighters say this may be at the hand of the dry and warm weather. Fire fighters say the people living in this neighborhood were lucky.

The yards around the homes were filled with tires and rubber which created an excess amount of smoke for them to get through. County officials are at the scene trying to figure out how it started.
