A 54-year-old woman was taken to a hospital after a fire completely destroyed her Cherokee County mobile home Sunday morning, officials said.
The blaze, which broke out at the East Gate Mobile Home Park on Bells Ferry Road around 11 a.m., left the family without a home, Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services said in a statement. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
The woman, whose name was not released, was treated at WellStar Kennestone Hospital for possible smoke inhalation, Cherokee County fire Chief Kevin Lanier said. The woman’s husband, her son and the son’s girlfriend were also in the home at the time the fire started, but escaped without injury.
One cat that was in the home was taken to an emergency veterinarian, Lanier said. A second cat that lived there has not been located.
Heavy smoke and flames completely blackened the inside of the home, Lanier said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
