Fire levels Candia mobile home

CANDIA - A fast-moving fire destroyed a mobile home on Island Road on Wednesday, Fire Chief Dean Young said.

Young said the home's owner, Kathy Tierney, left her 30 Island Road home for about 45 minutes when the fire ignited sometime before 12:45 p.m. Wednesday.

"When she came back, she called 911," Young said. "She had fire blowing out the back of the house at the time."

The home was destroyed by the fire, which is not considered suspicious, Young said. He said firefighters do not have a preliminary cause. Nobody was injured in the fire.

Fire departments from five other communities responded to assist Candia firefighters, he said.
