A fire broke out in an RV at the Northgate Mobile Home Park for unspecified reasons. The fire broke out in the bathroom of the RV, which did not contain smoke detectors.
When emergency crews made it to the RV, they found a 52-year-old and her dog dead at the scene.

Our thoughts are with the deceased woman’s family at this time.
Premise Liability in Texas
Sadly, an average of seven people lose their lives daily as a result of home fires in the United States. All property owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of the space that they rent out to tenants. They must make sure all of the walls, floors, and appliances are up to par before allowing access to the public. If an accident occurs that puts tenants in danger, they have the right to file a premise liability lawsuit with an experienced Texas premise liability attorney.
