A fire destroyed a mobile home at Teal Ct. and Canvasback Dr. in Bloomingdale around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. No was living in the residence and no one was hurt. Folks in the neighborhood say the owner's son was across the street. He ran over and tried to put the fire out.
"We first saw just smoke. Then we saw huge flames coming out of the top when the son was spraying it with a water hose. You just pray nothing like that ever happens to you. It is just devastating. I can only imagine what's going through their minds right now. At least no one was in the home. That is the most important thing," said Shelby Cook, witness.
They say fire crews from the power company were there Tuesday morning. Southside firefighters say the cause is under investigation.
