Plowden, who has three children, woke up to a smoke-filled mobile home and then she darted out the back door.
Because she was scheduled to work the late shift at Vermilion Health Care, her three children were sleeping at her mother’s home.
“I got up and saw black smoke,” said Plowden. “I left everything and ran outside and called 911.”
It did not take long for her mobile home to be totally engulfed in flames.
Five days later, Plowden and her three children are sleeping at her mother’s home. Everything is lost, including her children’s toys and clothes.
She said her children were disappointed when they saw the burned mobile home the next morning. Today she is asking for any kind of assistance, especially for her children. She has two boys, ages 8 and 7 and a girl, who is four years old. The boys wear 10 and 12 while the girl wears a 3-T.
If anyone can help her, call 326-6674.
As of Sunday, the reason for the fire is unknown.
