House Fire Erupts in Northeast Amarillo

Amarillo Firefighters battled a house fire early Wednesday morning in the 700 block of South Manhattan Street.

The fire began just after 3am.

Our photojournalist saw smoke pouring out of broken windows as firefighters doused the house with water.

Firefighters say the blaze didn't hurt anyone, and did around $25,000 worth of damage.

The Amarillo Fire Department says two juveniles were playing with a lighter when the fire accidentally broke out.
