Firefighters from both Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services and Woodstock Fire and Rescue responded to a mobile home fire on Stone Bridge Parkway in Woodstock Sunday afternoon.

A mobile home in Woodstock was damaged Sunday afternoon in a structure fire, authorities said.

According to fire department spokesman Tim Cavender:

Around 5 p.m. Sunday, Cherokee County 911 received a call stating that there was smoke coming out of the roof and windows of a mobile home on Stone Bridge Parkway, but no flames were showing. Firefighters from both Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services and Woodstock Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene within minutes and stated smoke was coming out of the eaves of the structure.

“The fire apparently started in the bedroom.” Cherokee County Fire Investigator Cheri Collett said. “The homeowner left the residence at approximately 3 o’clock that afternoon, traveling out of state for the holiday weekend.”

The mobile home received some fire, smoke and water damage. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
