Incident # 22-08539 - A doublewide mobile home was heavily damaged during a morning structure fire in the 100 block of Tanner Lane Thursday 03-November. At 07:53, a passing motorist notified 9-1-1 of smoke and flames coming from the residence. Engine 1 arrived a few minutes later to find heavy smoke conditions and flames coming from the front of the home. Firefighter-Paramedics deployed two handlines to the building and knocked down the flames from the exterior, then entered the residence by forcing the front door.
