Long/Ludowici Volunteer Fire and Rescue Fire Department, five people have been
displaced after their mobile home was destroyed by fire the morning of Dec. 5.

Maxwell said it took about 45 minutes to bring the fire under control. Fire units from Tattnall and Liberty County also assisted with mutual aid.
