WELLSVILLE — A Liverpool Township couple was able to escape a fire that destroyed their mobile home, while investigators are looking to determine what happened.

Liverpool Township Fire crews were called around 8:15 p.m. to 1318 Oak Grove Road, just off Campground Road, following a report of a fire at a mobile home. Crews parked three of their engines in an alley way underneath the home, which sat on a hill a little ways off of the road.

According to Fire Chief Dave Ward, two adults–believed to be middle-aged–were able to evacuate the structure upon fire crews’ arrival. At that point, according to Ward, the fire became fully involved and the house was considered a total loss. No injuries were reported.

Ward said the couple–whose names are not available at this time–were able to receive a ride from nearby family members and reportedly will be staying with them for the time being.

Liverpool Township police and Wellsville Volunteer fire crews were at the scene to provide assistance. Police blocked a portion of Oak Grove Road, while one Wellsville Volunteer fire engine was on standby on the road. The exact cause of the fire and location of where it started remain under investigation.
