This afternoon Volunteer Fire units from Bay Springs, Wicksburg and Taylor responded to a report of a mobile home fire with smoke visible at 443 Fortson Road. First unit arrived on scene and advised a double wide mobile home fully involved. Fire fighters battled the fire, the heat and lack of water supply in the area. No one was at home at the time of the fire, but the family lost everything including two puppies that were in the home.
Red Cross responded to help the family and brought water to the fire fighters. One fire fighter was treated on the scene for heat related problems. The cause of the fire is not known at this time. Please keep everyone in your prayers…
