A 66-year-old man was taken to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation after a single-alarm fire at the Pocasset Mobile Home Park on Tuesday morning.
The Bourne Fire Department responded to the blaze at 8 First St. at 8 a.m., after the man’s wife and their two dogs had evacuated the trailer. They all escaped uninjured, said Bourne Deputy Fire Chief Paul Weeks, but the mobile home is a “total loss.”
“It was reported as fully involved,” Weeks said. “It was fully charted with smoke and had flames coming out of the right side of the building.”
Due to the cold weather, the nearby fire hydrant was frozen and out of service when the fire department arrived, Weeks said, but the fire was contained with water from the fire engine tanks.
The man who was caught in the fire is currently in the intensive-care unit at Falmouth Hospital for observation, Weeks said.
“It’s my understanding that [the couple is] going to move to another trailer home in the same trailer park,” Weeks said. “They had that established with the park management company.”
The cause of the fire is still being investigated, Weeks said, but “it doesn’t seem to be suspicious.”
