House fire: A firefighter sprays down hot spots in the smoldering remains of a house fire Monday afternoon.

Charred walls, burned baseball cards and the brick façade is all that’s left of a vacant house destroyed by a fire Monday afternoon.

Firefighters from the Benbrook Fire Department arrived on the scene to find flames shooting out of the back of the house.

“A lot of the contents of the floor was burning from the floor all the way up,” Benbrook Fire Chief Tommy Davis said. “How it started, that’s all under investigation.”

George and Mary Ward who live behind the property along Linkmeadow Drive, near the border of Parker and Tarrant counties, called 9-1-1 after hearing popping on the site.
