Mobile home catches fire, Gainesville man loses everything he owns
Gainesville Fire Rescue responded to a travel trailer fire at Paradise Mobile Home Park on 4546 NW 13th St.
They were able to extinguish the fire but one responder said the man lost everything he owned.
Gainesville Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Joanne Rice said the man was sleeping inside the trailer when one of his chairs caught on fire.
"He worked to get that chair out of the house but unfortunately it caught some other things in the trailer on fire so the trailer is going to be a complete loss," Rice said.
She said they transported him to the hospital where he is being treated with minor injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
