MIDLAND COUNTY - A mobile home fire sparked up around 9:30 Saturday morning.

Midland County Fire Marshal Dale Little tells NewsWest 9  that the home off of County Road 1140 is a total loss. One person lived in the home and was not hurt.

The man told fire officals that he had tied his dog to his barbecue pit. He says the dog pulled the barbecue pit over and it caused the wooden porch to catch fire. The man had barbecued last night and there were still hot coals in the pit.

Again, no one was hurt.
