A mobile home owned by a single mother in Northwest Florida was destroyed in a fire.

Monday, just after seven o'clock, flames engulfed the two-bedroom structure located along Holmes County Highway 179 in the Gritney Community.

Melissa Taylor along with her children, ages 3 and 6, were able to escape the burning structure.

Taylor’s mother, Sue, helped get her grandchildren to safety.
