A Nederland house caught fire on Thursday, Dec. 15, near the intersection of Detroit Avenue and Gage Avenue.

"We received a call at 9:12 this morning, we were here within five minutes," Nederland assistant fire chief Terry Morton said. Upon arrival, he said the crew observed "heavy fire showing out of the front side of the house, through the front window."


Just after midnight on Wednesday, Oct. 12, Nederland, Port Neches, and Groves Fire Departments responded to a house on fire in the 200 block of 17th Street. The occupant evacuated the building as firefighters arrived, according to a statement.

All firefighters called out to the scene reported back to the station safely.

The house fire is still being investigated.
