Family homeless after fire damaged mobile home


Fire units from Ellisville Fire Department and Pleasant Ridge Volunteer Fire Department responded to a mobile home on fire at approximately 1 p.m. in the Eagles Nest Mobile Home Park on Highway 29 North, just outside of Ellisville.


Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the rear bedroom of the mobile home and prevented it from spreading to the other rooms.


The fire appeared to have been started by a TV that was sitting on a dresser in the rear bedroom and apparently was left on.


Dodd Cain along with wife Cindy and their two children, 2-year-old Eli and 16-year-old Hailey, were renting the mobile home.


Mrs. Cain said she had left to pick up her husband from work and when they returned the mobile home was engulfed in flames and firefighters were fighting the fire.


The rear bedroom was destroyed by the fire and the entire home received heavy smoke and heat damage.


Anyone interested in assisting this family with their loss may contact Dodd Cain at 601-323-8772 or Cindy Cain at 601-323-7413.
