The renter of a mobile home got home from work Wednesday night only to find heavy smoke in the house.

Atwood Fire Chief Chad Heckaman said his department received the call for the fire at 3529 W. CR 100S, lot 7, Warsaw, at 8:04 p.m.

“The occupant got home from work, opened the door and found heavy smoke” in the home, Heckaman said.

The fire was quickly knocked down, within about 20 minutes, he estimated, and contained to just the one mobile home.

The renter suffered a cut after using his arm to try to break a window, Heckaman said. He was treated by Mentone EMS.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

County records indicate the mobile home park is owned by Windstar Park Inc., Claypool.

Along with Atwood, fire departments from Mentone and Warsaw were called for assistance.
