UPDATED STORY (2:00pm)

A Greenview area resident is probably lucky to be alive after reported early-morning explosions and a fire that destroyed a mobile home and several vehicles at a location on Velvet Antler Road, off north Highway-7, in Camden County.

The Mid-County Fire District now says the call was received around 4:00am Wednesday morning and, upon arrival, the mobile home was 100% involved and one occupant was treated and taken to the hospital for third-degree burns.

That homeowner tells KRMS Radio and TV that he was cooking a steak outside when the flames got away from him and spread.

A nearby neighbor also tells KRMS that she heard multiple explosions before seeing several fire apparatus driving by and the orange glow from the fire which also spread across the road and started a small natural cover fire.

There were no other injuries reported. However, the man’s dog apparently died in the fire which is believed to have been accidental.
