Sauquoit, N.Y. - Sauquoit Assistant Fire Chief Bill Farley says smoke detectors were going off when firefighters arrived at a mobile home fire Sunday morning. Luckily the family of five all escaped unharmed by the time firefighters arrived.

It happened around 7:00 A.M. Sunday morning at the K & B Mobile Manor Mobile Home Park on Campbell Road in Sauquoit.

Initial reports were that everyone made it out of the structure, except for the family's pets.

Assistant Chief Farley says besides two adults and their three children, the family's dog also made it out safely, but the family's cat perished in the fire.

Farley says there was heavy smoke and some flames coming through the roof and the rear of the building when firefighters got there.

He also says it took some extra work to get water to the fire, "There's a bridge just in front of our engine that we didn't go over  because we didn't know if it would be able to hold our engine so we had to stretch extra lines to the house.

Farley says it appears the home may be a total loss and says the fire remains under investigation by his department.
