Fire likely claims historic Fort Worth home

Investigators are working to determine the cause of a two-alarm fire that appears to have destroyed a 100-year-old historic home in Fort Worth.

   The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that no one was injured in the blaze that broke out just after midnight Monday.

   Fire department spokesman Tim Hardeman said the Dillow House on the grounds of Texas Wesleyan University appears to be a total loss.

   Firefighters, responding to a call of smoke in the area, arrived to find smoke pouring out of the vacant building.

   Grocer and banker Samuel Dillow built the house and lived in it until he died in 1931. His daughter donated it to the university in 1979 and lived there until her death in 1982.
