Home appears to be total loss after fire

A single-wide mobile home on Stembridge Street that caught fire early Sunday just after midnight after a lightning strike appeared to be a total loss, according to the owner, Debra Cox, who had lived there 24 years. She got out and was uninjured in the fire, which she called in to 911 at about 1 a.m. She said she lost all of her clothing and appliances in the fire, and was not insured. She received temporary help from the Red Cross for a place to stay.
