Wednesday afternoon firefighters with Emergency Services District #3 were called to 280 East Allie Payne for a mobile home on fire.
The female at home said she was outside when she started hearing noises come from the home and then smoke from the roof. Firefighters arrived to find flames coming from the center of the trailer. After trying to put the fire out from the inside they were forced to cut a whole in the roof to get to the source. Preliminary reports are calling it an electrical fire.
The City of Orange and the Pinehurst Volunteer Fire Dept. assisted at the scene.
