ROOSEVELT — An early morning fire consumed a mobile home and forced the evacuation of neighboring mobile homes Friday in the Deer Run Estates in Roosevelt.
“I know they got her and her child out of there," Roosevelt police officer Tracy Bird said of the homeowner, Justine Fillingim.
Deer Run Estates manager Melissa Foster was on hand as the fire developed.
“She did have family in there with her,” Foster said. “I only spoke with her briefly, but she assured me that everyone has gotten out all right.”
The Roosevelt Fire Department was able to contain the fire to the home at 145 S. 500 East as Foster worked to protect other residents.
“I’ve been kind of busy trying to make sure other people were out of their trailers, just in case,” Foster said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
