West Iredell Fire Chief Jerry Houston says one of those individuals had burns to his hands and arms. The two others were children and were transported as a precaution.

It’s estimated that about seven dogs died in the fire – others made it out alive. Houston says one dog that made it actually alerted an occupant to wake-up and get out.

He says the mobile home is a total loss. The cause is under investigation, but Houston says nothing appears out of the ordinary. He feels it will be ruled accidental.
