TAFT, Texas — We have new details about three homes that caught fire in Taft.
San Patricio County Sheriff Oscar Rivera saying that it all started with a drive by shooting on East Elm Street near the intersection with Walnut Street early last Wednesday morning.
Rivera says the people inside the home were waiting for a vehicle when someone inside a passing car started shooting.
Those waiting outside also opened fire. No one was hit.
After getting a search warrant deputies found large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamines in the home.
Those who live in that house are still on the run.
Then fast forward to around 4 a.m. Wednesday, where investigators said that house was deliberately set on fire.
That spread to two other homes.
An elderly couple lived in one of those homes and the fire destroyed it.
