SW Georgia woman escapes mobile home fire through window

CAMILLA, Ga. (AP) — A southwest Georgia woman says she escaped a fire that swept through her mobile home by crawling out a bedroom window.

WALB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1Ma98f4 ) firefighters in Camilla extinguished the blaze Tuesday night but conceded the home was a total loss because of smoke and water damage.

Nera Kelly says she was home alone when she heard a noise that turned out to be flames shooting from the hallway. She said she had to crawl through a bedroom window to escape the fire. Then she called 911.

Firefighters are still investigating to determine what caused the mobile-home fire. Camilla Fire Chief Jaime Sullivan says authorities suspect the fire started in Kelly's car and spread to the home.
