A North Bryan family is reportedly homeless after an Oct. 2 fire destroyed their mobile home.

Jim Anderson of Bryan County Emergency Services said a 41-year-old woman and 4-month-old infant were at the Groover Hill area home at the time of the fire, but were able to get out when the mother detected smoke and left the residence.

They suffered no physical injuries, Anderson said, and asked that their names not be released.

"When we arrived we found the home fully involved. Bryan County and Pembroke Fire departments fought the fire for two hours, but the family lost everything. The home was so badly damaged we will never know what caused the fire," Anderson said.

The American Red Cross Disaster Action team was notified and came to assist the family.

"The Red Cross put them up in a hotel, but I’m not sure where they are now," he said.

Firefighters returned Oct. 3 around 5 p.m. to put out hot spots when neighbors noticed smoke coming from the rubble.
