Pet Lost in Mobile Home Fire
SIOUX FALLS, S.D.- A pet was not able to make it out of a mobile home fire early this Saturday morning.
The Sioux Falls Fire Rescue responded to a structure fire at 4701 West Thad Place. Firefighters were able to get the smoke and flames under control.
The fire was mainly contained to one room of the house. Firefighters found the home did not have a sprinkler system or working smoke detectors.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
The man who lived in the home, James Murray, was not home at the time. However, his 8-year-old dog Chloe was.
“She was just like a family member, she went everywhere with him,” said James’ sister, Lottie Murray. “Now he lost her and hes lot everything, everything.”
Lottie says James was without homeowners insurance and does not have any clothes, food, or a place to stay. A GoFundMe page has been established to help: https://www.gofundme.com/murray-house-fire
