A neighbor who was passing by the home saw the fire, knocked on the door and then called 911. Everyone made it out of the home safely.

Firefighters are still dousing the fire, but the flames have died down.

The mobile home is located near Crowfield Golf and Country Club. Fire officials believe that the kerosene heater caused the fire.

The American Red Cross has been called in to help the family.
