Fire Destroys Mobile Home Tuesday On Holder Road

An electrical malfunction is believed to be the cause of a fire Tuesday morning that destroyed a double-wide mobile home at 850 Holder Road, sheriff's Deputy Anthony Pruitt said in a report.

No injuries were reported in the fire, which was called in to 911 Dispatch about 7:40 a.m. Tuesday.

Owner Charles M. Garber told deputies that he left the house to take a child to school. Upon returning home, Garber "noticed the windows to the home looked dark, and he saw smoke coming from it," the report said.

Garber said he called 911 and then opened the front door of the mobile home in order to get the family's dogs outside.

"As he did, he heard a window in the back blow out. The fire appeared to have started in a back, left-corner bedroom next to the electrical panel," the report said.

Garber told deputies that an electrical outlet in the bedroom "had given them problems since they owned the home," the report said.

The outlet had not been used in about two years, Garber told deputies.

"He thought there may have been wire breakage leading to the outlet," the report said.

Damage to the double-wide mobile home is listed at $70,000, while damage to the contents is listed at $30,000.

The home is insured, the report said.
