A mobile home was destroyed by the fire.

A representative of the Vaughn fire department tells us that all residents were evacuated safely but there were unconfirmed reports that pets may have been inside.

Other responding agencies included Sun Prairie, Black Eagle, Gore Hill, and Sun River.

A GoFundMe has been created, which states:

Hi my name is Meranda, I am fundraising for my father in law James. He had a friend and the friends children living with him at this time. The kids’ dog unfortunately lost its life in the fire. James’s home and everything in it was destroyed. He and the others living there were moments away from getting out safely. I am working on raising money to help him get a new trailer to put on the property. James is a veteran who served his time, he is an amazing father and grandpa who has no where to go. We would love to get him in a new home for Christmas. Thank you to everyone who can share and donate.
