House on E. Driscoll Drive catches fire for second time

A house, which may have been being used by unhoused people as a squat, caught fire for the second time Monday night. Firefighters could be heard on scanner traffic discussing the house, which they said was occupied by unhoused members of the communinty. The house, which had been feral, also caught fire in early December 2023.
