Couple escape fiery Hudson home
HUDSON - A smoke detector sounded in the middle of the night, giving a Mobile Drive couple time to grab their dog and get out the back door of their burning home, according to a fire official.
Hudson Fire Capt. Steve Gannon said when firefighters first arrived on scene, after the fire was called in at 2:18 a.m., the 50 Mobile Drive home was "stem to stern on fire."
Investigators believe the blaze was accidental and caused by a malfunctioning heating unit. Gannon said the mobile home is a total loss and estimated damage at $50,000, including contents.
The owners, Darryl and Leona Dwoske, will be staying at an area hotel and with family, he said.
