    Walnut hollow out of wisconsin could probably do something like that- they print pictures on wood and it looks really good

    When it's time to pay the bill send me a message. I can afford a small donation to a family who's hurting.

    One man dead after trailer fire

    A Parker County man was found dead early Monday morning after his home caught fire overnight and he was unable to escape.

    Other residents got out of the double-wide mobile home on Lazy Bend Estates Road unharmed when smoke alarms in the house alerted them to the blaze shortly before 4 a.m., according to Parker County Fire Marshal Shawn Scott.

    The residents who escaped the house did an accountibility check outside when they realized the homeowner was missing.

    Family members broke the windows of the master bedroom in an attempt to go back in and find the man but couldn’t do so because of the smoke and heat, according to Scott.

    When firefighters arrived on scene, the house was fully involved in fire and a portion of the roof had already collapsed, according to Brock-Dennis VFD Chief Travis Scrimshire.

    Firefighters attempted a rescue but were unable to do so because the fire had progressed too far, Scott said.

    The fire started in the living area of the home, near the entrance to the master bedroom, where the man’s body was found, and possibly cut off his exit point, according to Scott.

    Investigators are looking at a couple of possible causes.

    There was a fire in the fireplace, Scott said, adding that he believes it is more likely that the house fire started as a result of a heat lamp being used under the home to keep the pipes from freezing over the past couple weeks.

    “It seems like it’s those little things that we get complacent about,” Scott said. “Leaving the heat lamps on ... we seem to have a lot at this time of year, the unintended fires. Those things we can’t get complacent about. We have to be on our toes all the time to prevent these kind of tragedies.”

    The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office had not released the man’s name Monday afternoon but neighbors identified the man as Donnie Collier.

    Brock-Dennis VFD, along with Millsap, Lipan, Greenwood and Cool-Garner fire departments, responded to the fire.
