5200 block of Ragan Road — Two residents were displaced from their home in The Colony after repair work on their roof went awry Wednesday.

Fire Marshal/Assistant Fire Chief Carl McMurphy said one of the homeowners, their dog and a contractor escaped the blaze unharmed. The second homeowner wasn’t home at the time of the fire, he said.

Officials said the fire was fully engaged when firefighters were dispatched at 1:24 p.m. “The winds made things very difficult,” McMurphy said.

Officials said the fire was apparently caused by a roofer using a torch to seal an awning. The contractor had left the home and did not realize things had gotten too hot, officials said.

Lewisville, Frisco, Little Elm and Plano fire departments assisted. One Lewisville firefighter was transported to the hospital for dehydration, he said.

While the husband was making the call, the wife began to get violent, police said.

When officers arrived on the scene, the couple were counseled and an assault report was made for further investigation, reports show.
