Firefighters were called to the scene of another mobile home fire in Long County on Wednesday afternoon, the second this week.

Ludowici/Long County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Fire Chief Chris Moss said the homeowner, identified as Randy Moody, returned to his home around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday to discover the home at 212 Rimmer Moody Road on fire.

When firefighters arrived, the single-family mobile home Moody shares with his wife and two children was fully engulfed.

Firefighters from Long County and Liberty County Station 15 from Gum Branch were able to get the fire under control quickly; however, the structure sustained significant damage.

Moss said it appears the fire may have started in the kitchen area, but the cause is still being determined.

Three firefighters were treated at the scene for heat exhaustion and released.

The Red Cross has been called in to provide the family with assistance.

The first fire broke out Monday afternoon at a home at Diggers Farm on Marcus Nobles Road.
