BRECKENRIDGE, Texas – One person was burned in a fire Monday morning that destroyed a house in Breckenridge.
A house in the 400 block of North Miller, across from the Breckenridge High School auditorium, caught fire around 7 a.m., according to the fire department.
Dwayne Dove, technology director for Breckenridge ISD, shot drone footage of the fire.

A person who lived there was burned on their back and “was transported to a burn center,” according to Chaney.
The fire department is not releasing the victim's name or condition.
“BFD’s thoughts and prayers are with the individual and their family,” said Chaney.
