Three people went to the hospital following a Eufola Road fire overnight.
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.
