A woodstove is believed to have caused an early-morning fire that destroyed a mobile home in the Dublin area early Wednesday.
According to Jeff Saunders with Dublin Fire Department, firefighters were dispatched to 6802 Cleburne Blvd. (Route 100) around 1:35 a.m. Wednesday for a fire in the area of Lilly Dale.
When the department arrived on the scene, they found the mobile home was fully engulfed in flames and the occupant of the residence had suffered burns. The resident, who was not identified, was transported to the hospital by REMSI, but Saunders did not know the patient’s condition.
A condition report cannot be obtained from the hospital without a name.
The mobile home was a total loss.
Newbern Fire Department was called to assist Dublin Fire Department with the firefighting effort. Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office assisted with scene control.
Less than 24 hours after the mobile home fire, Dublin firefighters were called to the scene of another fire, according to Saunders. He said the department was dispatched to a barn fire off Novell Loop around 7:35 p.m. Wednesday.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, they found the barn also was fully engulfed in flames. The department cleared the scene around 9 p.m., but the barn and its contents were a total loss.
REMSI and the sheriff’s office assisted at the scene of the barn fire.
