ECTOR COUNTY, Tx (KOSA) -- A violent house fire took place in Gardendale, east of Marigold Street on Monday evening that has now been controlled by fire crews, but unfortunately, much of the house has been burned away.

No word yet on what caused the fire at the moment. However, reports say that a neighbor heard people shouting that there were propane tanks inside, which may have exploded.

Reports also say that the house hasn't been there long. It was apparently only built a month ago.
