According to WCFD Chief Kevin Hunter, the call came in at about 1:35 p.m., advising the front porch of a doublewide mobile home at 144 VHW Road was on fire.
“Just prior to our arrival (the) caller further indicated flames were visible and spreading throughout the house,” Chief Hunter said in an email later Sunday afternoon. He added that all of the residents were out before firefighters arrived and there were no pets. “Upon arrival personnel found a doublewide mobile home with fire at the front door, into the house and heavy smoke throughout,” he said.
“Crews began their attack through the front door and into the interior,” the chief added.
