Mobile home destroyed in Bacon County

November 12, 2002

BACON CO. - A mobile home was tossed into the middle of Cohen Lee Road in Bacon County about 20 miles east of Douglas. No one was home when it happened around 8 Tuesday morning. The owner says he would have been inside had his car not broken down on his way home.

Neighbor Hazel Lee was inside her house and knelt in prayer as her roof was ripped off.

"You can replace material things, but you can't replace a person," Hazel Lee said. "So I am thankful for what the lord did for me, even if he did tear the house down."

Lee has lived in the home for 60 years and plans to stay there. But Tuesday she had to move all her furniture to a drier place.
