DEEP RIVER TWP. — People occupying a mobile home that ignited Jan. 24 in Deep River Township escaped the fire uninjured, but the home could not be salvaged, according to Sterling Area Fire Chief Scott Adams.

“It was a total loss before we got there,” he said.

The fire was reported at approximately 11 a.m. on the 5300 block of Kocot Road. Central Dispatch Director Chris Barbb said firefighters cleared the scene around 1:15 p.m.

The cause of the fire is undetermined. Adams said no contact has been made to the state fire marshal’s office about an investigation. He said the American Red Cross has been notified about offering assistance to the residents of the mobile home.

The Standish Area Fire Authority assisted at the scene.
