Firefighters examine the ruins of a mobile home destroyed by fire Wednesday morning on Eufaula Avenue, leaving Robert Sylvie and his wife only time enough to gather their pets before escaping. The fire began at approximately 11 a.m. by a wood stove that ignited one wall of the mobile home, which quickly went up in flames, said Muskogee Fire Department Assistant Chief Gordon Lee. By the time firefighters got the fire under control, the home was destroyed. No one was injured. The Red Cross was called to help the Sylvies.
