A fire in a North Side mobile home park killed a woman and her dog, revealed reports from a New York Injury Lawyer.
There were two more men inside the address when the fire broke out, but they got out in time, although they did in fact suffer pretty severe burns.
The deceased was identified by the city coroner as a 66 year old owner of the mobile home.
The neighbor of the deceased said that the fire woke him up, and also told police that the woman who died was on an oxygen tank.
Firefighters were called to the scene around 5 am and said the fire was so big and out of control that they could see smoke from the firehouse, which was more than a mile away from the trailer park. When they arrived at the fire, it was completely engulfed in flames. Fire investigators said it took 45 minutes to put out the fire.
Because the mobile home has a tin roof, the flames and heat were kept inside the home instead of venting out the top as they would in a typical house fire. The woman and her dog were found inside the trailer when the firemen arrived. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
A New York Burn Victim Lawyer said that both of the men who escaped the blaze were admitted to Deaconess Hospital and flown immediately afterward to Wishard Memorial Hospital’s burn unit. They are suffering serious burns at this time and it is unknown when they will be released.
The neighbor was very sad about the woman’s passing, and said that the woman was a good neighbor who never went out of her way to do favors or help out in any way she could. He said she was a very quiet and pleasant woman and did not deserve to die this way.
Investigators are still doing their best to determine just what caused the mobile home to catch fire. An autopsy is being performed on the deceased.
