Fire takes out family home

BROOKFIELD — A family’s home is a total loss after it caught on fire early Sunday morning.

Fire Chief Mike Coleman with the Tifton-Tift County Fire Department told The Gazette Monday they received a call shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday about a fire at a doublewide mobile home, located at 3111 Chula-Brookfield Road.

He said the residence was occupied by Randy Meadows, his wife and a couple of children. Brian York is the owner of the mobile home.

Coleman said the fire started off of a grill on the back porch that had been left smoldering. Some of the coals had fallen off and caught the wooden deck on fire, which led to the residence becoming engaged. The outside walls of the mobile home were left standing, but the inside was completely damaged, Coleman said. There were no injuries.

He said Red Cross was called in to help assist the family.
