Mobile home fire leaves elderly couple homeless, kills 3 pets

An elderly couple was left homeless and three pets were killed in a mobile home fire Saturday near River and Oracle roads, Northwest Fire said.

Two good Samaritans suffered smoke inhalation during the fire, which caused approximately $40,000 in damage, Capt. Adam Goldberg said.

Firefighters saved a dog and cat, but another dog, cat and bird found inside died, Goldberg said.

No one was home at the time of the 11:35 a.m. fire, he said.

A father and son saw the blaze from Oracle Road and stopped at the scene. They attempted to put the fire out with a garden hose, while calling out for anyone inside, Goldberg said.

They were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

The Red Cross and the Northwest Fire Community Assistance team were offered assistance to the couple.
