Family escapes mobile home fire

Authorities say a fire originating in a bedroom destroyed most of a mobile home in the central Maine town of Madison, but the family living there survived. Madison Fire Chief Roger Lightbody told the Morning Sentinel of Waterville that the bedroom was destroyed in Friday night’s fire and the rest of the interior had extensive smoke damage. Lightbody said three children and two adults were inside when the fire broke out. All of them escaped unharmed, but three cats died in the blaze.
