No one was injured but the family dog lost its life after a fire this morning at the only mobile home left in the Evergreen Mobile Home Park in Portage. Portage Assistant Fire Chief Dan Kodicek told the Region News Team firefighters were called to the 17-hundred block of Samuelson Road about 10:15am and spent about two-and-a-half hours at the scene. He says crews arrived to find the mobile home 50-percent involved and once the majority of flames were knocked down firefighters entered the home to search for anyone inside and that is when they discovered the canine.
Kodicek says the mobile home looks to be a total loss and an investigation continues into the cause and origin of the fire. Due to the damage the American Red Cross of Porter County has been notified to assist the family.
