Multiple People Unaccounted For In Mobile Home Fire
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Officials say multiple people are unaccounted in a fire that destroyed a mobile home in Rapid City.
Fire Lt. Jim Bussell would not specify how many individuals are missing. Bussell would only say multiple people were believed to be in the home when fire broke out early Friday.
Bussell says firefighters are moving slowly in a search of the home because of concerns about the stability of the structure. The fire damaged a second home at the B & J Mobile Home Park and ignited a small grass fire.
Firefighters say they found the mobile home engulfed in flames when they arrived about 5 a.m.
