A couple in Boonsville lost their belongings, including their dog Blue and rabbit Roger, in a fire that scorched their single-wide mobile home Friday night.

Reka Diaz and Tony Lane were in Decatur buying garden seeds and supplies for home improvement projects when they received a call around 7:30 from their landlord notifying them that their home on Private Road 3508, southwest of Bridgeport, was on fire.

The Boonsville-Balsora Volunteer Fire Department, which was assisted by Bridgeport, Lake Bridgeport and Runaway Bay agencies, responded within minutes. But when the first units checked on scene, the home was engulfed in flames.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Red Cross was dispatched to assist the couple, who lost everything. Diaz wears a size 12 pants, large in tops and 7 in shoes. Lane wears a size 40 in pants, extra large in shirts and 10 in shoes. To assist them, call 817-312-2704.
