High winds caused by unseasonably warm weather fanned the flames that quickly swept through a mobile home on Campground Church Road Friday afternoon, destroying the residence.
Fortunately, a mother and her children escaped the flames and were unhurt.
Capt. Todd Baker of the Northeast Nelson Fire Department said the fire occurred around 3:30 p.m.
It was reported that the fire started in the laundry room, probably in a drier.
“They were home, but they got out safely,” Baker said.
