|Medart fire destroys mobile home|
The Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office investigated a doublewide mobile home fire Sunday, Feb. 24 at 6:21 p.m., according to Sheriff Charlie Creel.
The mobile home was abandoned several years ago and is owned by Gregory Dorwood Heck of Speedwell, Tenn. The structure was destroyed by the fire despite firefighters controlling the blaze in less than 30 minutes. The home was a 1986 model, valued at $5,079.
There was no power to the home and firefighters do not believe the blaze was caused by a lightning strike. The exact cause of the fire is still unknown. The State Fire Marshal was called to the scene to investigate along with the WCSO Criminal Investigations Division (CID). Detective Lorne Whaley also investigated from CID.
