Single mother and two children now homeless after White House mobile home fire

A single mother and her two children are now homeless after a residential fire burned down their mobile home in White House on Monday night.

The mobile home, located on Mockingbird Hill Rd, was said to be a "total loss" by Fire Chief with the White House Community Volunteer Fire Department, Joe Williams.

Chief Williams reported that all three residents of the home, mother Linsey Davis, and her two children, ages 11 and three, made it out of the home safely when the fire alarms went off just before midnight.

Linsey Davis sustained minor burns to her hands, but otherwise, no injuries were reported.

“I’m a single mother and I just lost everything,” the distraught mother Linsey Davis said, “This was my home, I don’t know where I’m supposed to go.”

Davis will likely receive assistance from the American Red Cross, but without renter's insurance, she is asking the community for any help they can possibly provide to her and her children.

A donation center is now set up at White House Fire Station 2, 120 Business Park Dr. If you would like more information or to offer help you can call the fire station at (615) 672-5338.

The family is currently staying with neighbors.
