A fire at an Edwardsburg mobile home park left two families without a place of their own on Tuesday night.
Residents say the fire crews found the fire to be accidental.
For Floyd Price, the place he called home was no longer livable. And it was especially hard for him to pick up the pieces after a stroke paralyzed one side of his body.
His neighbors also dealt with melted windows and extensive damage to their trailer.
“Breaks my heart because I was just happy that everybody made it out and there wasn’t anybody that was killed. No one's animals got hurt,” said Tammy Sharon Sizemore, whose home was damaged in the fire. “Every time I go in there, I cry and I look at this, I cry and I have to look at this all the time because it’s right next door to me.
“Right now, I just lost everything,” said Floyd Price, whose home was destroyed in the fire. “This is the first present my kids ever bought me and even this got burnt. You can see the burns on it. But, hey I got my stick, that’s the most important thing to me.”
A neighbor has set up a savings account to help the two families rebuild and restore their homes. She is also looking for people who can assist price in clearing out all the debris that surrounds his home. To help out, call 269-699-9266.
