A deadly mobile home fire Wednesday morning in Omaha. Fire crews rushed to the Maplewood Estates mobile home park at 129th and Pratt after 8:00 am and found the mobile home in flames. They also discovered that a water hydrant at the mobile home park wasn’t working. It took them about a half-hour to get the blaze under control.
Officials say two people inside the mobile home died in the blaze. One person was injured and another escaped. Names have not been released and the cause is under investigation.
Metropolitan Utilities District received inquiries regarding that water hydrant not working. The utility says this is a private hydrant owned by the mobile home park and not M-U-D. The owner is responsible for the maintenance for the hydrant.
