WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A Pennsylvania couple was left homeless early Friday morning when a fire, believed to have started in a space heater, destroyed their mobile home at 8736 Windy Hill Road in Quincy Township.
According to Darryl Nunemaker, chief of the Mont Alto Fire Department, the couple, Herbert and Brenda Baker, barely escaped unharmed. Herbert Baker's hair was singed by the flames, Nunemaker said.
The couple was asleep. A smoke alarm woke them up, Nunemaker said.
"I don't remember what happened. I woke up and the whole place was on fire," Brenda Baker said. "The smoke alarm was going off. I yelled to my husband to get out of bed. He went out through the living room door and I went out the back door. All we got out with was the clothes we had on. I didn't even have shoes on."
