Two fires into mobile homes displaced two Blakely families.

Bad weather also knocked out a lot of power in the area.

Thomas Wayne Weber and his son lived at a home on Fosters Avenue.

They left when the power went out. 

After about two hours the power came back on.

Soon after, the house was in flames.

One neighbor saw it all happen.

"First it was a big black smoke and then it just caught," said Tricia Taylor. "I mean the fire just came out the top of it. I was most concerned about them because they have nothing...nothing left. All they have is them."

The Webbers house is destroyed. 

They lost everything including their three dogs.

Neighbors said they have moved temporarily to a motel.
