Seabrook House Fire

On Monday, June 22, 2020, at 4:13 p.m. Seabrook first responders were dispatched to a house fire located within the 1400 block of Cottage Cove Court in Seabrook, Texas. The first unit on the scene arrived at 4:20 p.m., and the last unit on the scene left at 8:30 p.m.

The preliminary investigation by the Seabrook Fire Marshal indicates the fire could have been ignited by mechanical equipment that was being used to remodel the master bathroom while kitchen cabinets were also being refurbished with flammable paint products. The fumes from the paint products, in conjunction with a possible spark from the equipment, may have combusted.  

The two contractors working in the home were transported by Life Flight in critical condition to the Memorial Hermann Red Duke Trauma Center.  The homeowner and his daughter were also in the house when the fire ignited and were transported with non-life-threatening injuries by Galveston County Health District EMS to a local hospital. Both the homeowner and his daughter have been released from the hospital.  

At this time, the property appears to be a total loss. The garage and some miscellaneous items in the garage were not damaged by the fire.

Agencies and departments which responded the fire include the Seabrook Volunteer Fire Department, Seabrook EMS, Seabrook Fire Marshal, Seabrook Police Department, Seabrook Public Works, Galveston County Health District EMS, Memorial Hermann Life Flight, Kemah Fire Department, Nassau Bay Fire Department, League City Fire Department, Port Houston Fire Department, and CenterPoint Energy.

The house fire continues to be investigated by the Seabrook Fire Marshal. The cause is currently being identified as accidental.
