The fire at 303 Blue Oak Drive started sometime after 11 a.m. — and by 11:25 a.m., firefighters said it was still fully involved. Dispatchers said they received word that everyone was out of the home.

Firefighters from Conklin and Allendale responded with pumpers and additional manpower to battle the blaze.

Branda Andrews was at home with her husband and 14-month-old daughter when she said the fire ignited at the mobile home. They managed to get out of the home with their three dogs and cat.

The Andrewses said the blaze may have started on the deck.
