Firefighters arrived within minutes after a 911 call alerted them to a house fire at 1310 Galway Sunday, March 30, in Beaumont’s west end. 

Shortly after 3:40 p.m., Beaumont Fire Rescue units responded to find heavy flames engulfing the attic of the home and thick smoke billowing throughout the neighborhood.
