Mobile home destroyed in afternoon fire


A mobile home is destroyed after it caught fire Sunday afternoon.

Crews were called to the double wide mobile home fire located in the Holiday Village area. This is a private and gated community located off of Highway 154 in Wood County, near Lake Fork.

Officials tell us that a woman was burning a stump, when it spread to a nearby storage shed. The fire then spread to the double wide mobile home.

The woman who was home at the time of the fire was able to get out without any injuries. One firefighter was transported to a local hospital to be treated for heat exhaustion. We are being told he is expected to make a full recovery.

The Quitman Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene and were assisted by surrounding crews.

Officials tell us the mobile home is a total loss.
