Early Morning Fire Causes Heavy Damage To Southlake Mansion

SOUTHLAKE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - Crews were at the scene of a fire that caused major damage to a home in Southlake Friday morning, officials said.

Firefighters responded to the 700 block of South White Chapel Road at around 5 a.m. and a fire at a home that was under construction. There was no one inside at the time.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

The home on a five-acre property was once owned by late broadcasting legend Pat Summerall.

"I've been a police officer for 15 years so, you know, there's a lot of loss of property and that's why we have insurance. The fire department was here super fast and that's one of the great things about being in a small community like this, everything is pretty close and we were up and at it and ready to put it out," Brad Uptmore of Southlake police said.
