Just after midnight Tuesday morning firefighters from the Piney Chapel and Owens communities responded to a mobile home fire in the 2100 block of County Road 127 in Limestone County.

The owner of the mobile home said he woke up to the alarm of the smoke detector, and by the time he got up, the mobile home was full of smoke.

Firefighters quickly put out the fire.  They say it started in the floor and was likely caused by faulty electrical wiring.

The man should be allowed back into his home tomorrow after inspectors determine the home’s electrical wiring is safe.
