A 99-year-old woman loses her newly-renovated home in a devastating fire on Oakdale in Southeast Houston
Around 2:30am, firefighters were dispatched to a house fire on Oakdale at Palmer. When units arrived they found flames coming from a two story house. Firefighters made a fast attack and seemed to get a handle on the fire fairly quickly, but extensive damage was still done.
The home belongs to a 99-yr. old woman who had lived there since 1950. It was currently being renovated and the woman has been living with her daughter. She was scheduled to move back in next week.
