A Marion County fire in a mobile home resulted in the death of a 61-year-old man, officials say. The Marion County Fire Rescue has issued a statement that reports that the fire began close to 1:26 on Wednesday Morning in Bellview.
After responding to the call, the rescue teams arrived at SE 117th Street Road along the 9900 block to find the mobile home in question completely engulfed in flames. Witnesses to the fire indicated to the Marion County Fire Rescue that the homeowner, who has recently been identified as Donald Moore, was still inside the blazing structure.
It took the fire rescue team, composed of 15 Marion County fire response vehicles and 24 firefighters, just under 10 minutes to have the fire completely under control and subdued, but by that time it was too late for the emergency services to rescue Moore, who has been declared dead.
As of this moment, there has not been any official diagnosis as to the fire’s origin, and it is not known whether the blaze was the result of some negligence on Donald Moore’s part or if it came about due to some other unknown circumstance. In situations such as this, it can often take some time before the precise reasons behind a deadly incident are fully known to the general public. Before any concrete hypotheses can be posited there must be a complete investigation, and then the next-of-kin and the family of the deceased must be properly notified. For them, the difficulties associated with a tragedy of this sort can take some time to sift through.
The reality of the situation is that due to circumstances that are as-of-yet unknown a man has died. Often, instances such as the one in which Donald Moore perished are easily preventable, and all it takes is the diligence and responsibility of certain people for lives to remain intact and families unbroken. It is when carelessness enters the picture that fatalities begin to emerge from scenarios that would otherwise be non-lethal.
The investigation into the reasons behind the mobile home’s combustion will continue until the authorities are satisfied with their findings.
