Resident Puts Out Own Fire at Madison Heights Mobile Home

Posted:

Amherst Co., VA - Having a fire extinguisher on hand may have saved a Madison Heights home Thursday morning.

The Amherst County public safety director says around 12:30 a.m., a mobile home on Duke Drive caught fire.

Gary Roakes says the owner was able to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher before crews arrived.

While investigators looked for a cause, the Red Cross put up the three residents in a hotel for the night.

Roakes says it started from an electrical outlet in the kitchen.
