Firefighters from the Ludowici/Long County Fire Department battled a blaze Saturday afternoon which destroyed one mobile home and spread to the mobile home next door.
The fire broke out at the Spring Creek Mobile Home Park off Tibet Road in Long County around 5 p.m.
The Ludowici/Long County Fire Department requested assistance from the Walthourville Fire Department and the Long County State Prison Fire Team. The Long county Sheriff’s Office and Excelsior EMS also responded to the scene.
Crews arrived to find unit #25, a single wide aluminum framed mobile home, completely engulfed in flames. The heat and fire melted the vinyl siding of the mobile home next door. Soon smoke and flames billowed from the second unit.
Firefighters quickly extinguished both fires. Both homes are considered total damages and uninhabitable. However both homes were unoccupied and no injuries reported. The fire remains under investigation.
