Firefighters from Atlantic and Marne responded Friday afternoon to a mobile home fire in Marne. The call came in at 4:36-p.m.  The trailer, which was located a little west  of the Roadhouse Bar & Grill, was unoccupied prior to the firefighters’ arrival. Heavy smoke was showing from the structure when the first units arrived on scene. The residence, which sustained extensive damage,  was being used by two adult females and their dog. The Red Cross notified, to try and find suitable housing.

Fire officials say the blaze apparently started in the kitchen area, but the cause remains under investigation. No injuries were reported.
