Wise County fired deemed suspicious

Wise County fire officials are working to determine the origin of a fire that destroyed a house on Farm Road 718 in Newark early Monday morning—and officials say the fire is suspicious. The fire, which was reported at about 2:20 a.m., gutted the house, which was already fully involved in flames when units from Newark, Rhome and Boyd arrived at the scene. The house is owned by Joe Garcia, who is reportedly in the hospital in Decatur, and his wife, Tammy, is currently in the Wise County Jail. The Wise County Messenger says there were several dogs in the house and not all of them escaped the flames.
