Fire completely destroys mobile home

LUMBERTON- by Jessica Crawford

Just before noon, the sound of explosions were heard on Spiller Drive. The sounds caught the attention of Chris Fowler, who left his house to check on the family of his best friend.

"I just ran down here because I was worried about them and they have quite a bit dogs and I was worried about the dogs and the family," he said.

Authorities say the mobile home burned quickly.

"It appears to have started in the back and moved forward," said Fire Chief Robert Simonson of the Lumberton Fire Department. "By the time we got here it had already vented through the roof and the back half of the trailer... it was a well developed fire by the time we got here."

The fire destroyed the home, but officials say that the family of the seven inside made it out safely.

"We did treat the owner for a small laceration in his forearm," said Simonson. "He tried to break the window to let the smoke out to help his dog get out."

Fowler says that one of the family's dogs died in the fire, and it doesn't look like the family could save much else.

"It looks like they have nothing even to wear to school," Fowler said. "All they just have is their pajamas and that's it."
