Three-Alarm Fire Guts Upscale Home in North Dallas

The cause of a fast-moving, three-alarm fire that heavily damaged a North Dallas house Thursday has not yet been determined, fire officials say.

The fire appeared to begin in the garage of the large two-story home on the 10 block of Collinway Place, near Hillcrest Road and Interstate 635, just after 4:30 p.m.[[382414871,R]]

Officials said there were two people home when the fire began, a husband and wife, and the man was taken to a hospital for treatment after he was exposed to the fire. His condition was not known Thursday evening.

Nearly five dozen firefighters worked for more than two hours to extinguish the flames, Dallas-Fire Rescue said in a press release.

Part of the effort to fight the fire involved cutting a hole in the roof to reach the attic.

Thick smoke could be seen for miles while firefighters worked to get the fire under control.

The home is valued at more than $1 million, according to records, and it sustained severe – if not total – damage, along with three cars inside the garage where the fire began.
