The heat in Texas has been insanely drastic in the last couple of months. The Killeen fire department released a statement that another home located at the 500 block of Carly Drive caught on fire at 2:30 in the morning and it took about 30 minutes for the fire to be put down.

There were at least 28 personnel that responded to the home, including the fire, engine tracks, a two-tower ladder, a truck one heavy rescue vehicle, one ambulance, two battalion chiefs, two EMCs, supervisors, and one engine company. Someone who is a resident of the home had to call in about the fire and on the arrival, the crew realized there was a heavy fire coming from the Garage. The flames in the house had already burned through the roof and two vehicles in the driveway.



The owner of the home states that all four occupants and one dog living there evacuated the home safely and a resident did say that there was a second pet inside, but after a continuous search, no other pets were found inside the house. The firefighters remained on the scene until 5 AM and the crew believed the fire started in the actual garage space. As of right now no one is sure how the fire started but the Killeen Fire Marshal's office is investigating the incident.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
