A fire allegedly started by a boy playing with matches destroyed a home at 106 Midway in Manor early Tuesday evening.

“It was a total loss,” said Manor Assistant Fire Chief Chad Evans. “Most of the fire was on the back side of the building where the boy's bedroom was. The boy admitted to playing with his grandma's matches. He was in a closet when he started the house on fire.”

The fire started at about 4:30 p.m. at the home of Joe Wienskovich, who lives there with his wife, Amy, and three children, including the 12-year-old boy believed to have started the fire.

No one was injured, and it is unclear who was home when the fire started.

“I am not sure, I wasn't in the home,” Wienskovich said.
