No one was injured in a fire this morning at a home in the Brookwood Mobile Home Park, 1908 E. 19th St., but a dog died of smoke inhalation.

Lawrence Douglas County Fire Medical responded to a call at 10:19 a.m. Crews found a single mobile home with heavy smoke seeping out of several openings. The fire was extinguished at 10:41 a.m.

The trailer was not occupied during the blaze, said Division Chief Eve Tolefree said in a news release. The Red Cross is assisting the displaced residents, and fire investigators work to determine the cause.

Where can I find out who the family is, and what they may need?

The best bet is to call the Red Cross, ridikkulus.

I am a close friend of Amy's, she has given me permission to post her email address for you to contact her. Her email is stoutner6@yahoo.com. They have pretty much lost everything, they are a family of 6 with a 15, 13, 12 and 6 year old. Thank you for your concern, I know that any help given to them would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

---that dog died a terrifying death. it breaks my heart to consider that, and to know such a family is literally out in the cold without their friend.

I love my dog, who has given me many years of devotion and support. the thought of losing him to such a fate is blood curdling.

I trust the Red Cross has plenty of resources for this family. they are an excellent charity and do so much with a relatively small budget.

God care for you all in this time of loss.
