Firefighters responded to a fire on the 7000 block of Sunshine Avenue Thursday morning.
UPDATE (11:27 a.m.)—A fire severely damaged a house Thursday morning along the 7000 block of Sunshine Avenue in Kingsville. Sunshine Avenue remained closed at the First Baptist Church of Kingsville, north of Kingswood Lane, as of 11:15 a.m.
Firefighters contained the flames by 10:30 a.m. and fire investigators remained on the scene after 11:15 a.m., Berna said. The cause of the fire remains unknown.
Marcia Kuklane watched as firefighters tossed charred items from one of the home's windows. Her 69-year-old mother had lived in the house for more than 30 years, she said.
"We just have to figure out where she's going to go. We're anxious to see what we can salvage." Kuklane said.
She and her siblings all live in Kingsville, she said.
"My dad recently passed away. ... It was nice that she still had her independence," Kuklane added. "This is just horrible."
