Child starts fire
A 4-year-old child playing with matches on Sunday started a mobile home fire that caused about $50,000 in damages near Dudley.
The fire started at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday at 162 Burke St. The family escaped, but their home was heavily damaged, Dudley Fire Chief Kendall Lee said.
Fifteen Dudley firefighters contained the fire in a bedroom and a bathroom, but smoke and water from fire hoses damaged the remainder of the home. Mar Mac assisted with about 12 volunteers and three trucks. They remained about an hour and a half at the home.
The home was valued at $60,000, and contents were valued at $20,000. Damage was estimated at $40,000 to the home and $10,000 to the contents, Lee said.
Neighbor saves home
A neighbor's call for help Wednesday prevented significant damage in a mobile home fire near Eureka, officials said.
Unattended cooking was blamed for a fire at 103 Dotsie Drive, Eureka Fire Chief Mike Brock reported.
The resident, Tim Pleasants, "was mighty lucky," Brock said. An unidentified neighbor saw the fire and called 911.
"There was a bunch of mess on the stove," Brock said. "I assumed that the pot was thrown outside."
Thirteen Eureka volunteers answered the 5 p.m. call with three trucks, and about 12 Faro volunteers assisted with three trucks. They needed about 30 minutes to investigate the cause and to ventilate the home.
