Man Found Dead Following A House Fire Sunday Morning

A 76-year-old disabled man was found dead following a house fire early Sunday morning in far southern Parker County.
Firefighters found a single wide mobile home in the 200 block of Paula Court in Lake Country Acres fully involved in fire when they arrived. They were unable to enter the house.
All they could do was keep the fire from spreading to neighboring buildings.
The Weatherford Democrat says the man’s grandson, who lived next door and called 9-1-1, told firefighters he was awakened by his dogs and the sound of explosions and, when he went outside, saw the house on fire.
The man reportedly used a motorized wheelchair and had some other medical issues that may have affected his ability to escape.
Authorities have not released the man’s name as of Monday afternoon.
