Fire damages mobile home, destroys second

AUBURN - A fire broke out in an outbuilding behind a home in a mobile home park Thursday afternoon.

U.S. Highway 124 was closed for 30 minutes while firefighters laid a hydrant hose across the road, said Craig Stanley, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Fire Department.

The Barrow County Fire Department was contacted for assistance since the mobile home park was on the county line.

No injuries or fatalities resulted from the fire at 1485 Cains Road, but the blaze caused minor damage to the mobile home and spread to a vacant mobile home next door, completely destroying it, said Stanley. It is not known at this time who owns the vacant mobile home.

Firefighters had the situation under control at 4:19 p.m. and were then able to reopen roads.
