Mobile home fires have displaced two Hall County families in less than 24 hours, fire officials said Thursday.
The first occurred Wednesday evening when a candle sparked a fire that displaced three adults and four children. Crews responded to the mobile home in the 5400 block of Saddle Club Road just before 6:30 p.m., according to Hall County fire spokesman Zach Brackett.
“Arriving units found a single wide mobile home approximately 50% involved with fire,” he said in a statement.
After firefighters extinguished the blaze, investigators determined it was accidental.
The second fire occurred Thursday afternoon at a home in the 3500 block of Suggs Road in the eastern part of the county, Brackett said.
When crews arrived about 12:45 p.m., they discovered an outbuilding was engulfed in flames, two vehicles were on fire and that the blaze had extended into a single wide mobile home, Brackett said.
The fire was extinguished shortly after 1 p.m., but its cause is still under investigation. Three adults and one child who lived in the mobile home have been displaced, Brackett said.
No injuries were reported in either fire, and the American Red Cross was contacted to assist the 11 people displaced, authorities said.
