Large University Park home heavily damaged by fire

A University Park home is a soggy mess after a massive two-alarm fire.

Fire crews were sent to a large, two-story home on Colgate Avenue near Preston Road and Northwest Highway on Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say the fire had quite a head start and it took several hours to knock it down in upper 90s heat.

A Red Cross Emergency Disaster Services truck was brought in to keep the firefighters fed and hydrated. The home is heavily damaged but no injuries were reported.
