Northwest Florida Fire

A Northwest Florida family is homeless this morning after a fire destroyed their mobile home.

Around 8 o'clock yesterday morning neighbors reported flames coming from Doug Mixon’s four-bedroom trailer in the Pittman Community of Northern Holmes County.

Fortunately, no one was at home when the fire erupted. Mixon's two children were spending the night with nearby relatives at the time and Mixon had made a trip to the store.

The family was recently hit with tragedy just a few months earlier when his wife suddenly died.

Authorities are not sure what caused the house fire.
