Oktibbeha County Emergency Services responded to two mobile home fires in the space of a few hours late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.

The Oktibbeha County Sheriffâ€™s Department (OCSD) is investigating the fire, but county fire officials reported in a press release that it appeared to be an electrical fire originating in a bedroom. None of the trailerâ€™s occupants were home, and while a pet dog was present, it was not injured.
