Fire Destroys Home

Around 4:30 a.m. Monday, volunteer firefighters from Lauderdale, Northeast and Toomsuba responded to a call on Cook Road.

Upon arrival, the fire was fully involved.

"In fact it was turned in as two trailers on fire. Upon arrival, our first company on the scene reported that one trailer was fully involved and actually it was an add on to the original trailer," said fire coordinator Clarence Butler. "Fire was going through the original trailer plus the
add-on. The lady had escaped from the fire. It appeared the fire started from an electrical heater a little bit too close to the bed. "

No one was injured but the mobile home was destroyed in the blaze.
