EL PASO TEXAS- On 10/22/13 at approximately 10:40 PM Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a structure fire (possible Arson) at the 17000 block of Pratt, El Paso County Texas. Upon arrival Deputies saw a travel trailer, storage shed to include a horse corral engulfed in flames. Clint volunteer firefighters were summoned to the scene. The cause of the fire is unknown and the structures were a complete loss. The damage was estimated at approximately $30,000. An El Paso Fire Department/Arson investigator was also summoned to the scene due to an additional structure fire reported on the same block eight days ago on 10/14/13. The victim in the 10/14/13 case, was alerted by a call from a neighbor who saw the victim’s house was “burning”. When the victim arrived to the residence, the fire was extinguished possibly due to the roof caving in. The victim estimated her loss at approximately $20,000. The residence was an unoccupied structure. It is unknown if the two fires are related.
