Investigation underway after McKinney fires destroy church, home & restaurant
McKINNEY, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — An investigation is underway after two fires destroyed a church, a home, and a restaurant near downtown McKinney early Monday morning.
Just after midnight, the McKinney Fire Department responded to a structure fire call on the 500 block of Wilcox Street. When fire crew members arrived, they found a fire at the rear of the New Outreach Church of God in Christ.
Officials said a resident was safely evacuated from a nearby home that also caught fire. As a precaution, other homes in the neighborhood were evacuated.
Amid battling the flames, fire crews were called to another fire just blocks away at the Chicken Express on S. McDonald Street.
All three structures were destroyed, officials said.
No injuries were reported and investigators are now trying to determine where and how the fires started, and whether they are connected.
