Mobile home melts from fire

January 13, 2004

Colquitt County - A south Georgia family loses their home to fire.

The Wynn Swine Farm mobile home on Hopewell Church Road in Colquitt County was destroyed. A mother and her son escaped unharmed around 10:30 Thursday morning.

The farm family tried to salvage cash and coins that were inside. Culbertson Assistant Volunteer Chief Patrick Stowe says, "It's been said that all the money was in the house and they are trying to get out what they can keep. Everything they own is a lose, everything, including money. THey are having to start over all over again."

The Colquitt County American Red Cross will help the family find a temporary place to stay. It took several volunteer fire department teams to put out the flames.

Windy conditions made it more difficult. Firefighters are not sure how the fire started.
